Recognising the benefit of transforming its Youth Centres to leverage these outcomes, City of Onkaparinga is now calling for expressions of interest from a broad range of community service providers and organisations to lease/license space within Wardli Youth Centre. In August 2024 Onkaparinga Youth Services will be collocating with Onkaparinga Youth Enterprise Hub and Neporendi Aboriginal Community Centre at Wardli Youth Centre and we are seeking expressions of interest from agencies and businesses whose values and service deliver aligns, compliments and adds value to these existing and future services.

Leasable spaces vary from 8.5 to 45.5 square metres (licenses for commercial kitchen space at the Wardli Youth Centre are available, with fees based on total hours of operation).
