What is a Neighbourhood House / Community Centre?

Neighbourhood Houses are part of a social movement that begin in the 1970s. The movement now has 400 Neighbourhood Houses throughout Victoria Australia and the number continues to grow, responding to community need.

Neighbourhood Houses are special, because they are owned and managed for and by the local community. Everyone involved can share in decision making.

Neighbourhood Houses have special atmosphere. They are places of welcome, where anyone can come to make new friends, participate in community life and share learnings.

Neighbourhood Houses differ from one another; however they all encourage personal growth, self help and knowledge sharing. They work together in informal and formal partnerships with other community organizations, enriching the quality of life for community members.

It’s been another challenging year with COVID in play, we have spent a greater part of the year closing on very short notice, opening to equally short notice and adhering to State Government restrictions, which have put a strain on participants, tutors and room hirers, not to mention coordination and committee.

More information about the 2021 AGM including the 2021 Coordinator’s AGM Report, and the 2021 Minutes and Chair’s AGM Report can be found here.
