Victory's covid response
During this global health crisis, it is clear that working together and collaborating towards a better future is more important than ever.
These have been strange times. Sometimes it has been scary, watching the situation worsen overseas, and wondering what the impact might be for our families, our communities and our nation.
At the end of this, we hope for things to be different. We hope to see community and health prioritised. We hope our vulnerable communities are more connected and receive more support.
At Victory Community Centre our staff have been on the front lines and we’ll be sharing the experiences of our team.
Victory is a thriving and caring community of health, hope and possibility.

- A range of health services
- A large programme of activities and events

Our vision is that Victory is a thriving and caring community of health, hope and possibility.
