Japara is proud to have long standing relationships with community groups. We partner with groups in a number of ways, from collaborative projects to formal and ongoing relationships. Some of the groups we work with include:

U3A Yarra Ranges – A volunteer cooperative of older people who share many educational, creative and leisure activities, the University of the Third Age, will be located in Japara’s new Living and Learning Hub in Kilsyth.

Kilsyth Seniors – Our Seniors group has been running for many years, and provides an opportunity for people over the age of 55 to come together to enjoy a social and recreational environment. The group meets on Tuesdays, from 10:30am to 2:30pm and welcomes new members to pop down for a cuppa and a chat. Contact 03 9728 3587 to find out more.

Yarra Ranges Council – Japara has a strong and healthy relationship with Council, providing support to council on delivering their community outcomes. We are actively engaged in ensuring council’s priorities meet the needs of our community.

At Japara, we are keen to develop partnerships with community groups in the area. We look forward to hearing from you to see how we may be able to work with your group.
