This community is truly wonderful. I discovered SECC while seeking help from various places, only realising they were nearby when I was referred from another community JNC. Here, I met Juliette Herrera, a caseworker who became like a guardian angel to me during a difficult period of losing a loved one and facing health, emotional, and financial challenges. Juliette showed remarkable skill, passion, compassion, and understanding in her work. She tirelessly connected me with numerous community resources and other organisations to support my family and me through tough times. Not only did she assist, but she also offered encouragement. Despite my struggles with communication, she listened patiently, advocated for me with organisations like my children's school and healthcare providers, and always made time to discuss our plans in detail. I am deeply grateful for Juliette's dedication and hope that this community recognises and values her commitment. Even though my situation is ongoing, Juliette continues to stand by me. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of assistance.

I miss their Community Kitchen nights. They used to be free and then they started charging $2. The People's Pantry offers LIMITED options and for those struggling we are in desperate need of non perishable items not just canned stuff and pasta. Also anytime you need help they haven't provided me any in desperate times. I'm shocked that community centres don't actually help people!

I am so happy I found SECC! In 2020 I attended an Art Class with Clio and a Poetry class with Tonny (and Gavin), and this year I am attending and thoroughly enjoying three classes, all different, but all so much fun. The staff are so welcoming, and the other people joining in are very friendly and we all have a laugh while we are learning new skills. I look forward to continuing with classes throughout the year. And a special shout out to Tonny, whose warmth and inclusion make me and everyone else feel so positive.

We have been attending SECC's playgroups and Mother's Circle for almost a year and cannot recommend it enough. The playgroups are so well organised and set up for varying aged babies to children. The staff are friendly and inviting. They also have a great toy library which is easy to order from online and straight forward pick up and drop off.
