Who We Are

Glyde-In Community Learning Centre, 42 Glyde Street, East Fremantle, offers courses, talks and activities that we hope will enrich your enjoyment and knowledge, and foster a healthy community life.

We aim to be a source of learning that doesn't cost the earth, that doesn't need prior knowledge or qualifications, and doesn't ask for a huge commitment of your time. Our courses are non-competitive and informal. Tutors are from all walks of life, and we welcome more! Glyde-In is committed to the inclusion and recognition of all members. The premises are wheelchair accessible. The Centre is run by a volunteer Management Committee, and four part-time staff members. We generate much of our funding through membership and course fees, and are also supported greatly by the Town of East Fremantle, who provides our building and its maintenance, and very substantial funding.

Glyde-In gratefully acknowledges the support of staff and councillors of East Fremantle Council.

Glyde-In Bushfire Appeal

Glyde-In Community Learning Centre launched a bushfire appeal in early January this year to help small communities in East Gippsland get back on their feet. Our fundraising efforts conclude today, with a grand total of $17,695.00 raised. A huge thank you to all our supporters for their contributions, large and small. We will be sending the money to the East Gippsland Network for Neighbourhood Houses, where it will be used to assist sister-centres in the small towns of Mallacoota, Bruthen and Swan Reach to help with the communities’ most critical needs.
