Hornsby Village Hub

Hornsby Village Hub

The Hornsby Village Hub for Seniors is a new community led initiative coming in 2022. The new Hub will aim to tackle social isolation and loneliness experienced by older Australians (55+ and Indigenous 50+) living in the region by connecting community members and introducing them to a range of activities and services either existing or new across the shire.

The Hub will not be located within a fixed place, but instead at agreed locations dependent on the needs of its member at the time, creating opportunities for like-minded individuals to participate in group activities to support their own wellbeing, active ageing and strengthen their connection with other hub members.

The activities offered by the Hub will be inclusive and allow members to participate according to their needs, preferences, and capabilities. Activities will be chosen by a committee but may include events such as walking groups, coffee mornings, art classes, book clubs and a guest speaker program. The Hub will also run on a membership model to help participants feel a sense of belonging and ownership.

Hornsby Village Hub Seniors Art Competition

A call for Art Entries

Do you have artistic talent and live or work in the Hornsby Shire?

Sydney North Health Network (SNHN) in partnership with Hornsby Shire Council is calling for artistic entries from Senior community members interested in creating the visual identity of a new community-led initiative, the Hornsby Village Hub.

The Hub itself will not be located within a fixed place or space, but instead represents community within community for its members who will meet at agreed locations dependent on their need. As a result, a visual artistic representation of what ‘connectedness’ in the Hornsby Shire Senior community looks like will help its members to feel a sense of belonging and ownership.

The chosen artistic representation of the Hornsby Village Hub may be used across the Hubs branding, marketing, and communication assets and the winning artist will receive $2000 AUD in prize money.
