Tatura Community House was established in 1981 as a community development initiative to provide social services to the community. The House has grown to meet the current day needs of the community and provides a large variety of services including adult education, childcare, social and leisure activities, information and referral.
The Tatura Community House is a not for profit organisation run by a voluntary committee elected from within the community.
The House is run on a day to day basis by paid staff and volunteer workers.

Social and Cultural Inclusion – Welcoming all regardless of their age, culture, disability, gender, indigenous heritage, ethnicity, origin, religion, sexual orientation, care responsibilities and life experiences or economic or other status.
Innovation – Continuous improvement through innovative and outcome-based thinking.
Lifelong Learning – Lifelong learning gives us the chance to broaden our horizons, boost our confidence and open up new opportunities.
Advocacy – Individuals and their needs need a spokesperson to connect them to the right services and to lend a compassionate ear.
Connectedness – Positive relationships are the cornerstone of a community. By enabling and strengthening positive relationships between individuals and groups, our communities grow and become strong, empathic and resilient.
