Service update July 15th 2020

Good news! Bagster Road Community Centre is open to all public with strict COVID-19 restrictions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9.00 am to 4.00pm. Programs are available as follows:

  • Hall/room hire with limited number of attendees
  • Occasional Care (child care)
  • Fast & Fresh meal kits
  • Flourish wellbeing group (in August)
  • Other programs will be brought back gradually with comprehensive risk assessment.

Important Change:

  • Café 17 has been closed until further notice as it undergoes a strategic program review. We still can provide your catering needs (with COVID Safety Measures in place) and you can still get your Fast & Fresh Meal Packs as normal.
  • The price of Fast & Fresh Meal Packs will be changed $10 each and BBQ packs $18 each from 1st August 2020. This is the first price increase since the Fast & Fresh program began in 2013. We regret that we can no longer absorb the increasing costs of the ingredients in these packs and need to increase the price to make the program sustainable again. We thank you for your continued support of our centre and look forward to continuing providing these healthy meals for you.


Important Notice

Dear Everyone,
Hope you are all going well and staying safe during the lock-down. Thanks so much for maintaining trust in us and your willingness to continue these connections. Unfortunately, we have to make the following changes responding to the current COVID-19 Safety Plan and the super high demands to the Wheels in Motion @ Bagster (the WIM program).
• The WIM program is being suspended temporally due to the COVID-19 restrictions (the social distancing in particular).
• The Expression of Interest Register will be closed until further notification. This will allow our existing participants to be able to continue with their mentored driving hours within our maximum capacity once the restrictions have eased.
We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by the above changes. However, we will still endeavour to help more participants in the near future once we have increased capacity.
Warmest regards
Wheels in Motion @ Bagster Team.

Kaurna Yarning

Community Youth FIlming has had the first screening done! 

Kaurna Yarning is a community youth filming project expecting to increase engagement with local youth with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander background via online platforms. It will educate the wider community and engage other mutual supportive access through the filming making and screening. Seeing their stories, their own narratives on the big screen will be meaningful and enormously important for participants and the wider community. Participants will decide the filming content with the facilitation and support. Kaurna Yarning is not simply making a film, but also a way to empower young people through having access to technology, a way to break the digital divide, and an opportunity to celebrate their culture in the way they divided. It is also a way of expressing yourself by breaking the boundaries between cultures and communities.
