Who we are
The Fitzroy Learning Network is a community-based Neighbourhood
House that welcomes people from diverse educational, cultural
and social backgrounds.
We provide education, English language skills, job interview
skills, computer skills and basic life skills particularly
for newcomers to our community.
Since August 2000, Fitzroy Learning Network has been a lead
agency in supporting Temporary Protection Visa holders released
from Immigration Detention Centres. The Network has well developed
links with other organisations who work toward the same ideals;
FLN responds to each wave of new arrivals in Melbourne, often
being the first port of call for ESL lessons, information,
advocacy and support. The most recent group is the African
community particularly those from the Sudan
We made a difference to their lives, now they are making
a difference to ours
While we get great support from the Victorian
Government, Yarra Council and Philanthropic Trusts, we couldn't
do what we do without community support, volunteers and donations.
Many of the people we work with are not entitled to government-funded
settlement services. Without our help they would be left to fend for
themselves on the streets of Melbourne with only a handful of dollars
-- not knowing where to go to get accommodation, health services,
how to find a job.
Please help us build a stronger community by making a donation. You
can arrange for a regular donation or authorise a direct debit from
your bank account by going online here:
How to volunteer
| We would not be able to achieve the all
things we do without the support of our committed volunteers
who help with each of our programs. An extensive volunteer
program with over 150 volunteers currently involved in all
aspects of the Network.
| Our programs include: Adult Education,
English as a Second Language, Computer Courses, Sewing Classes,
Over 55's Program, The Computer Clubhouse and Refugee Support
| After school the Network is transformed
into the Fitzroy Computer Clubhouse by an influx of excited
and chattering kids aged 8-18 who turn our computer lab into
a "design studio" using professional, state of the art software.
The program is facilitated by the Clubhouse coordinator and
supported by volunteer mentors from the IT industry and IT
| We support the rights of the child and
will act without hesitation to ensure a child safe environment
is maintained at all times. In accordance with ACCYO requirements
we have recently developed a Child Protection Policy. Please
