The heart of our hills community

Selby Community House is a colourful and lively place where people come together to learn, connect, grow and participate. We’ve been providing social participation opportunities, learning and support to the local community since 1975.

We exist to provide you with opportunities to be inspired, to learn and grow, to stay healthy and fit, and to share in special experiences with other like-minded community members. We’re fortunate to be a part of a very special community, where people take joy in participating and sharing their time to assist and empower others.

Every term, we offer a range of courses and activities to enrich and empower the local community, including formal training, fun classes and events, occasional childcare and playgroups, and of course the annual Selby Fest.

We’re proud of our colourful, passionate community and we look forward to welcoming you!
