Karumah has moved

moving-van[1]We moved on the 16th November 2015 to a new address in Islington. It was a sad and fond farewell to the old house in Hamilton and all the memories, we had been there for almost 10 years, but it was time to move on. It was a financial decision and also time for Karumah to move it’s centre activities out into the community.

Our new premises are offices only, and we will be inviting service users and stake holders to visit us next year to have a look. But service users are always welcome to call in and see Catherine or myself about any matter and Catherine will be spending most of her time out on the road visiting you and running events and workshops.

Please call us on 02 4940 8393 or mobiles – Catherine 0401 028 033 or Machele on 0437 567 820.
