Eureka Clubhouse is part of a unique worldwide network of 330 Clubhouses (see www.iccd.org) and works within a framework guided by the International Clubhouse Standards. The involvement in running the Clubhouse and the meaningful working relationships people form while doing this is the core of the Clubhouse model of recovery and rehabilitation.
Access to the service is via voluntary membership and is for people who experience mental health Issues At Eureka Clubhouse, members and staff work within a collaborative partnership in the every day running of the service. Members are involved in all aspects of the Clubhouse, from cooking lunch and running the fundraising canteen, administration duties and support to members who are unable to attend the Clubhouse.
At Eureka Clubhouse, we facilitate and support employment, housing and education, as well as opportunities for recreational activities and friendship. Membership is available to persons over the age of 18 and is obtained by word of mouth, referrals from allied health services, and other members. The opportunity of joining as a member begins with a simple orientation site visit on Fridays. A member has a voluntary choice to access the service daily Monday to Friday.
To enquire further ring and book for an orientation session.
"Clubhouse has given me opportunities that I really don't think would have been available to me anywhere else." (Cindy).
"I have found confidence in my ability to achieve outside my home where my role is primarily a mother. It has benefited me greatly to achieve a personal level and achieve thorough support from Clubhouse which is an immense help and I always say thank you to them." (Margaret).
"I treat Clubhouse like home where we are all one big working family caring for the association and one another. Some of us come to gain skills, some to volunteer in the work-ordered day, and most of all to have acceptance and understanding." (Julie).
