Our thriving space is also a fantastic venue hire facility for child care events, meetings, consultations and community groups. When you hire at the Y, you're also helping to support our social impact initiatives.

Community Support

YMCA Springfield Lakes Community Centre is a welcoming place for local residents to engage and help build our local community. We open our doors to everyone who needs help and support during difficult times.

In late 2020, our centre became the primary location in the community for people who had lost their homes to a severe hail storm to:

  • Receive food
  • Talk to Energex
  • Meet with the Department of Housing
  • Consult with the banks & insurer
  • Charge their mobile phone etc.

If you require support, please do not hesitate to contacting us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to discuss your enquiry.
