We understand that many people in our community are currently experiencing financial stress. For this reason, we make our fees as low as possible and as a not-for-profit Prahran Place’s focus is on building communities not profits!
As a Neighbourhood House we receive various funding streams from the Commonwealth, State and Local Governments that assist people in affording the cost of our classes and activities.
If you meet certain criteria, you can qualify for a concession or reduced fees, as outlined in our course guide.
Concessions available if you hold any of the following Commonwealth cards:
For participants over 65, eligibility for discounts to most of our classes can be requested through the Commonwealth Home Support Program. If you have not already signed up to My Aged Care – the funding partner for the program, we can assist you with your application. If you are already a My Aged Care client all we need is a group referral to Prahran Place to have the discount applied.
Prahran Place also provides pre-accredited education to help students gain skills for study, work and life. Most students qualify for this funding (as long as you are a permanent resident or Australian Citizen) which allows you to attend our Learn Local courses at a discounted rate.
As a carer who provides unpaid care for a partner, family member or friend with a disability, mental illness, addition, chronic health issue or an older person with care needs – we can provide you with support. Most of our classes are funded under the Carers Employment Support Program (CESP) for all unpaid carers.
