Welcoming Centre at Kilburn: Port Adelaide Enfield

The City of PAE and Welcoming Australia are delighted to share that the Welcoming Centre has found a new home at our Kilburn Community Centre.

The relocation of the South Australian Welcoming Centre will allow them to expand their work alongside diverse and vibrant communities and organisations such as Vinnies Refugee and Asylum Seeker Service, The Peace and Welcome Garden, the Kilburn Football and Cricket Club, One Culture Football, Lutheran Care, St Brigids and other local schools, businesses, and community groups.

The Kilburn Community Centre, neighbourhood and surrounding area, including the newly redeveloped Prospect Road, is already a dynamic space and there is strong alignment with the principles and work of Welcoming Australia. Our partnership will build on existing work and relationships and model a ‘Welcoming Precinct’, in Kilburn and surrounding areas, through collaborative projects, initiatives and activities.

The City of PAE is a safe, inclusive and welcoming City for residents, businesses and visitors alike. In May 2017, we became the first council in South Australia to join the Welcoming Cities network and in May 2022 we became officially accredited as a Welcoming City. This partnership and co-location will complement and extend existing activities and efforts and further advance communities where everyone can belong, contribute and thrive.
