COVID-19 update - Bridge Darebin

COVID-19 update

Last updated 2 April 2020

Bridge Darebin is committed to the safety and wellbeing of our community, staff and volunteers. As the COVID-19 situation develops, we want to share the changes we’re implementing, to keep you informed.

Our community is what keeps us going. Thank you as always for your support, understanding and consideration at this time. We’re all in this together!


Our Preston and Thornbury offices are closed to the public and scheduled to reopen on 20 April.

Adult education

  • Term 2 art & craft courses and health & wellbeing courses have been cancelled and are scheduled to return in Term 3.
  • Term 2 English language, computer and job-ready courses are scheduled to begin on 20 April, but in a slightly different format. These programs are funded by the Victorian Department of Education and Training, and we are following their guidance on the matter. Delivery sites may differ from what’s in the term planner, as some programs may relocate to larger venues to accommodate social distancing. Check back for updates from 15 April as we monitor the situation.
  • Our preferred payment method is now EFT/credit card, online or over the phone. In the event of a course cancellation, all fees will be refunded in full by direct payment to your nominated bank account.

Child care

Child care is scheduled to return from 15 April. Check back for updates as we monitor the situation.

Moon Rabbit

Moon Rabbit café is open for business with a special new menu – food, drinks and prepackaged pantry essentials – for takeaway and delivery only. Visit the Moon Rabbit website for details and to order online.

Makers Market Thornbury

We’ve cancelled all large public events in the near future, including Makers Market Thornbury in March. The 20 June market is still scheduled to go ahead but we are not yet taking stallholder bookings.
