Nearly 50 years Selby Community House was established based on community need. The house has a long and rich history and was integral to the development of community houses in Victoria and initiated programs such as community based playgroup, childcare, Selby Folk club and community development courses (which are now delivered in TAFE). Women were the driving force of change at the time with just a few creating an incredibly unique and important community space, which has since supported so many.
