Changes to services at Lucas Community Hub

Attention please

In line with other facility closures, the City of Ballarat has announced changes to service delivery arrangements for immunisation and kindergarten services currently operating out of the Lucas Community Hub building. 

Childhood Immunisation Clinics – effective from Tuesday 31 March 2020, the immunisation clinics (booked appointments) scheduled at Lucas Community Hub will relocate to Sebastopol Library.   

Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Services have been relocated across multiple sites. Due to current COVID-19 precautions, this service has been reduced to mostly telephone consults and some home visits. The enhanced MCH team has been moved to meeting rooms at the Sebastopol Library. 

Lucas Kindergarten auspiced by YMCA Ballarat will be temporarily moved to another location. The City of Ballarat is working with the YMCA to identify a suitable temporary location and a contingency plan to ensure service continuity of kindergarten services if, subject to advice from the government, they continue at the commencement of Term 2. 

Ballarat Mayor Cr Ben Taylor acknowledged the inconvenience these changes would create for families, but said they were necessary in the current climate.  

“I want to particularly thank the YMCA and its kindergarten families who will be impacted by these temporary arrangements,” he said. 

“Our goal is to keep services accessible and operational for as long as we can and to ensure our resources and facilities are utilised in the best interest of our community, as we work together to get through this crisis,” he said.
