Living & Learning Nillumbik now uses an online booking platform called Social Planet.

Social Planet has been developed specifically for neighbourhood houses and their communities, so is a perfect fit for Living & Learning Nillumbik.

It is safe and easy to use, so you can quickly and easily book in to any of our course or activities.

We have already begun using Social Planet for our Carers Hub and Skills Hub activities and we’re happy to say the feedback has been positive.

We asked one of ours long-standing Living & Learning Nillumbik community members, Sabi, for feedback on the new booking process:

“I’m tentative with these things, and I found it pretty straightforward.

I could follow it so many other people could too.” 

Term 3 enrolments: when and how to enrol

Our Term 3 activities will be available to enrol from 11 June.

Why has Living & Learning Nillumbik changed booking platforms?

There are two key reasons why this change has happened.

  1. We’ve listened to feedback.

    We understand that our previous system was challenging at times.

    As a result, we have invested in a more appropriate and easier to use platform.


  2.  L&LN was previously a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) responsible for delivering qualification training.

We no longer operate as an RTO, meaning we no longer need the complex booking platform we were using.

Instead, we can use an appropriate community-focussed booking platform to ensure easy booking processes.
