Is a community owned and operated organisation offering a range of support services and activities to families and individuals living in Inala and the surrounding areas. HUB Community Projects Inc. is the amalgamation of two grass roots community organisations that have been part of the fabric of the Inala community for over 30 years.
HUB Community Legal started in 1986 when a group of volunteer lawyers and community members formed the Community of Inala Legal Service ("COILS") to provide free legal advice to members of the local community. Since then, we have continued to grow and develop wtih the support of State and Federal Government funding. In 2001 the organisation’s name was changed to South West Brisbane Community Legal Centre to better reflect the services we were providing across Brisbane’s south western suburbs. In 2019, we changed our name to HUB Community Legal, following our merger with HUB Neighbourhood Centre.
HUB Neighbourhood Centre began in 1986 when a group of Inala residents, concerned about the isolation of older community members, envisioned a drop-in centre where people could pop in for a chat, meet others, and build relationships. An incorporated association was established, with meetings and activities moving from the home of a local resident to the community health centre. In 1989, a house was provided by the Queensland State Government, and HUB Neighbourhood Centre officially opened it's doors. In 1994, funding was received to employ a staff member who worked with volunteers in the delivery of services and programs.
In 2015, these two grass roots, community driven organisations merged. In 2018, the name of the incorporated association was changed to HUB Community Projects Inc. We now have a team of over 18 staff and 70 volunteers.
We strive to promote a society where all people are valued & supported by providing access to justice and community connection.
