Celebrating Neighbourhood Centre Week 2022

Neighbourhood Centre Week, happening across Australia from 9 to 15 May 2022. It is a nationwide initiative to celebrate the role of over 1,000 Neighbourhood and Community Centres. A common thread that runs through every one of the Community or Neighbourhood Centres across Australia, is their inclusive nature: anyone and everyone is welcome, and members of the community are encouraged to get involved in their community and in the centre’s organisation and myriad of programs.

This year’s theme is “Building resilience by bringing people together”which is quite timely.

Coffs Harbour Neighbourhood Centre aims to raise awareness of the services available and will host a BBQ at Bunnings to assist in raising funds to meet community needs. CHNC offers and hosts a range of programs for everyone in our community. Our programs encourage people to come together, whether this be connecting over shared interests such as art or craft, conversation, participating in educational workshops, or joining in various support groups. We aim help people build their connections and improve their health and wellbeing. Providing information and a range of programs allows people to choose what services, supports and activities are best for them. What people want and need changes for everyone over time, we aim to provide a range of services that are helpful and engaging for wherever someone is in their life or circumstances.

We are proud of the work that our team does towards building the strengths of our community and encouraging people across our community to contribute their knowledge, skills and talents to support our broader community. We listen to our community, and as a result have been able to collaborative include initiatives such as VoiceUp Australia, providing support for survivors of childhood trauma and support groups for people who want help with addiction and their families.

The range of services and programs is on our website www.chnc.com.au
