Our History

Following a rapid increase in the Caboolture population in the mid 1980’s it became apparent that the community needed a central meeting place where residents could access information, develop social contacts and participate in group activities. In 1987 an application was made by Combined Emergency Care Organisation (now Caboolture Community Care) to the then Department of Families for funding to establish a Neighbourhood Centre in Caboolture.

The original funding provided the premises at Edward Street, an establishment grant of $1000 as well as a small annual operation grant. Some of the early services and groups included a women’s group, a morning tea for new arrivals, a multicultural group, Alcoholics Anonymous, U3A, Commonwealth Rehabilitation Service, Family Haven and youth groups. The Centre was fully staffed by volunteers until it was incorporated in June 1992 and a position for a full time Community Development Worker was funded.

In 2007 the Centre accepted an invitation by the Department of Communities to link with Caboolture Community Care, Family Haven and Home Life to form the Multi-tenants Service Centre Co-op Ltd. The services function independently but share the facilities located at the George Street Community Place, Caboolture.

The nature of the services and programs offered at the Centre has changed over the years to reflect variations in the community’s need. The ability to attract additional funding has enabled the Centre’s staff to place a strong emphasis on providing direct support for community members who are facing physical, emotional and/or financial hardship.

Various groups currently access the Centre’s facilities to provide community members with a diverse range of services independent of those offered by the Caboolture Neighbourhood Centre.

We are guided by our values – Compassion, Integrity, Respect and Perseverance.

By learning from others and sharing what works well for us, we are able to deliver positive outcomes for individuals, families and communities. We work to stop problems before they start, provide support to prevent situations from getting worse and form partnerships to find long-term solutions to community issues.


Sometimes life’s frustrations and problems just seem too big or too difficult. We may be reluctant or unable to share our struggles with family or friends and are unsure of where assistance might be available.

The Caboolture Neighbourhood Centre is a friendly, local service which offers a range of support programs to meet the individual and community needs of the residents of the Caboolture-Morayfield area.

The Centre provides direct access to skilled professionals who can assist community members who might be feeling distressed or experiencing a sense of helplessness as a consequence of their social, financial or health circumstances.

The programs, which can be delivered on an individual or group basis, provide opportunities for people to gain information and practical assistance which will enable them to manage their situation in a more helpful and sustainable manner. As a result people generally feel more in control of their own lives and are able to make choices which are relevant to their circumstances. For more information on the available services provided see Services menu.

The Centre also hosts a number of community based groups which cater for more specific needs within the community. These groups utilise the Centre’s facilities to conduct their meetings or courses independent of the Centre. These have been included in the Services area of our site.

The Centre’s relaxed and welcoming environment lends itself to community activities. The attractive outdoor area with shady gazebos and the community garden are ideal for workshops, barbecues and gatherings. Please contact the Centre for more information and availability.

The Centre is located in George St, Caboolture and easily accessed by train or bus. ​Parking is also available in the adjacent multi-story car park in Hasking Street (next to The Hub).
