The Centre has several community organisations that offer advice and assistance including access to support services and help with English.

The Centre hosts many of the Canberra region’s large multicultural events and forums,

Rooms are available to hire so anyone can host their own meeting or function.

Theo was the founder and first President of the Greek community in Canberra, and a founding member of the Hellenic Club. Theo died in 2001, leaving a strong legacy of contribution to Canberra and to the Greek community in the ACT.
