Deakin Cats Community Centre attracts 80,000 visitors in four years

Deakin Cats Community Centre attracts 80,000 visitors in four years
November 16, 2017

During its four years of operation, the Deakin Cats Community Centre at GMHBA Stadium (Kardinia Park) has welcomed over 80,000 people through the doors.

The hub for delivery of the Geelong FC’s Community Foundation and Engagement Programs including BioCATS, Just Think, Cyber Cats, and Wada Nyooro, hit the 80,000 milestone during its first Open Day at the end of October, which saw over 4,000 people visit the stadium.

In partnership with Deakin University, this purpose-built facility contributes to the Cat’s community vision for greater engagement with the broader Geelong community, by providing a free, state-of-the-art facility.

The Centre is home to the Past Players and Officials Association and houses the clubs memorabilia in the Gartland Heritage Centre. There have been over 117 different community organisations that have utilised the Centre to achieve health and wellbeing outcomes for the community, 34 of those in 2017 alone.

The Deakin Cats Community Centre is one of the 10 Cats in the Community programs which help empower young people to make good choices about their health and wellbeing.
