Right in the middle of Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, our Broadmeadow Hub is a great spot to meet new friends, learn new skills and take part in fun activities in a safe and supportive space.

What's happening at Broadmeadow Hub?

At the Life Without Barrier’s Broadmeadow Hub, you can try new hobbies, meet new friends, learn an instrument, discover a different sport, or head out and explore our local community – all in a supported environment. It is about getting out there, meeting people, and giving things a go.

We're one of the few places in Newcastle with a physical space for you to come and find your community. Life Without Barriers began in Newcastle in 1995, that means we have got almost 30 years of experience and local knowledge.

We stick to our values that are all about supporting you as an individual to assist you get involved in doing the things you love, getting out and exploring our community or even trying something new. To learn more about how we do this, check out our 'About Us' page. 

What activities can I join?

We have all kinds of day program activities that are open to everyone. You can come alone for some one-to-one support or join a group program - it is up to you. We have arts, sports, music, dance, woodworking, and lots more on offer in the Hunter. We also understand group activities might not be for everyone, so we also offer individualised support, in-home support and community-based programs across Newcastle and Maitland. Whatever you might need or are looking for, we are here to help.  

Check out our weekly schedule below, or head to Our Services to find out what each activity is like. If you want to discuss what’s available for you, you can talk to our friendly local team by calling 0431 720 785.
