Welcome to "The Dame"

The Dame is a community-integrated and connected pop-up retail store located at 88A Grant Street Alexandra, and operated by Menzies Support Services.

Early in 2024, Menzies partnered with Foundation Murrindindi to bolster the delivery of responsive and effective support programs in our community, and The Dame was born.

Through The Dame program, Menzies supports NDIS participants, return to work placements and trainees through our partnerships, providing them with meaningful and engaging connection with the community whilst gaining life and pre-work skills within a safe and supportive retail environment.
The Dame philosophy is promoting inclusiveness and support for persons with disabilities and those who require a safe environment to regain self-confidence, self esteem and the necessary work skills to re-enter the workforce after disconnection, whilst reducing stigma and creating positive relationships within the community.

The name ‘The Dame’ maintains the connection with Dame Pattie Menzies who was born in Alexandra, lobbied, campaigned and became the patron of Dame Pattie Menzies Centre in 1980 after the purchase of "The Mount".
