Neighbourhood Centre Week celebrating inclusivity and connection

During 2021, more than 1.6 million people accessed help at neighbourhood and community centres in Queensland. Neighbourhood Centre Week (NCW), happening now (9-15 May 2022), is a nationwide initiative to celebrate the incredible role these centres play in supporting their communities, building connections and fighting social isolation.

Neighbourhood Centres Queensland’s 2021 Sector Impact Report underscored the incredible work that continues to be carried out at centres across the state, and their contributions across all areas of government – from Domestic and Family Violence support, to training and employment, legal services, family support, digital inclusion, disability support and housing and homelessness services.

To celebrate the week, neighbourhood and community centres are inviting their communities to come together and attend free events. Find out what events are on this #NCWeek2022 and how you can celebrate your neighbourhood centre.
