Social and Service Clubs

Across our local area, there exist many community groups, clubs and services that contribute to the wellbeing, diversity and vitality of residents.  Port Adelaide Enfield Council works in partnership with the community on many projects and programs where individuals, families and community groups can thrive.

Various units within Council aim to support groups through community development and community learning. Council staff are passionate about working with and for local people, towards their goal of a healthy and vibrant community.

Arts groups, sporting clubs,  youth services, volunteering and cultural groups play an important part in creating community wellbeing.
