Our Purpose

  • To provide support to families and community group
  • To create an environment in which personal and community development can take place in a friendly neighbourhood context

  • To provide classes and educational opportunities in response to community needs
  • To provide a meeting place in the community as a means of breaking down barriers and isolation

WSNH is a Community House situated on top of the hill in Doubleview, so named, for its views of the coast to the west and the city of Perth to the east. It was initially established by volunteers who recognized the need for a local, neighbourhood centre to provide services and a meeting place for families.

After 25 years, our vision is still the same. Although we now receive government funding (from The Department of Local Government and Communities), and employ staff, the House, being an incorporated organization, is still managed by a volunteer Management Committee.
