Save Power House

The community needs Power House more than ever before right now.

It is a social ecosystem that inspires community, delivering positive health and wellbeing programs to many marginalised community groups, and has done for over 90 years.

In the last decade alone, Power House has supported the delivery of 1.3 million voluntary hours and generated over $3 million in social enterprise revenue.

The work of so many has lead us proudly, however a failure to act on refurbing Power House will prevent all the incredible work in the past from expanding and prevent future generations from accessing the full LSC&PH experience.

It’s time to invest so this iconic building not only last another 90 years however it delivers:

Funds Raised $8.5m
