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.

Most of us want to stay at home as we age. When extra supports might be needed to remain independent its good to consider which ones you need and how to select a service provider that suits those very needs. Jenni is one of three women who learned a great deal as their own parents aged, and they have banded together to form Live Well Longer. Its all about staying at home as long as possible and their knowledge is worth a fortune.
