Across the inner-west, Australia Post has partnered with local businesses and community organisations to create Welcome Spaces; places where members of the community can go to have a chat, take part in activities and know that they’ll feel welcome.

Neighbourhood Welcome Service is an initiative that has been developed by Australia Post in and with Melbourne’s inner-west community. The service is being trialled in the City of Maribyrnong until June 30, 2020 and is designed to help make neighbourhoods more welcoming places.
