The ACH building is a house that was donated to the Barrabool Shire by the Tasmanian Government for emergency housing following the Ash Wednesday fires of 1983.
It became home to a local person for five years after her house was burnt out in the fires. In 1989 Council made the house available for use as a Community House.
It was seen as the perfect fit because the house was originally donated to benefit people in crisis and would continue to serve the wider community.
Community use and interest prompted the Shire to allocate $20,000 towards additional construction works to modify the structure to meet community needs. Without the volunteer labour and other input, the Community House would not have been able to grow to what it is today, offering childcare, rooms for use by community groups, space for exercise classes and so many other activities.
More than a physical space, the ACH continues to work to respond to community needs and initiatives.
ACH has celebrated more than 30 years of working with community and we continue to work, even beyond the physical space of the house, to support people to participate in the community.
