On the 27 July, 2020 Community Northern Beaches entered a new phase of service to the Northern Beachesâ€™ community when it relocated to 52 Raglan Street, Manly. After decades at Wentworth Street, in a building that has now outlived its usefulness, we have moved to a modern, well-designed office that will offer even more opportunity for our staff, volunteers, partners and clients. This is an exciting but exhausting time for our staff, particularly coming as it has in the middle of a pandemic!
We will be busy this week finalising our move while remaining open to our clients. Much had already been done by staff and volunteers, including the construction of racking in the new storeroom and the relocation of all our food, clothing, bedding and toiletries to Raglan Street. All new furniture has been delivered and set-up.
The new premise has six soundproof counselling rooms, including one specifically for a free GP service for clients. There are also two meeting rooms, opening into one larger space via a folding wall. Smart TV technology and whiteboards complement each meeting room, making it ideal for organisations wanting to use the space for meetings, training and seminars. Staff and volunteers will finally have a large kitchen and â€˜chill-outâ€™ space to utilise.
While there is still much to be done Community Northern Beaches would like to thank everyone in the community who have continued to support our efforts and follow our progress across the many areas of community assistance we provide. Everyone is welcome to drop-in and see us in our new home once we have settled in.
Opening hours (10-2 Mon-Fri) and phone number 9977 1066 remain the same!
