Neighbourhood Centre Week (NCW), happening 9-15 May 2022, is a nationwide initiative to celebrate the role of neighbourhood centres in local communities across the nation.
A common thread that runs through every one of the 1000+ centres across Australia, is their inclusive nature: anyone and everyone is welcome, and members of the community are encouraged to help in the centre’s organisation, management and use.
Building resilience by bringing people together
Reflecting on the past two years and the lessons we learnt on the importance of social connection and community resilience, this year’s theme is ‘Building resilience by bringing people together’. The aim is to look forward to rebuilding a more resilient and connected community as many of us re-emerge from the lockdowns that saw so many Australians isolated during this unprecedented time in our country’s history.
We encourage all Neighbourhood and Community Centres across New South Wales to hold events, activities and media campaigns leading up to and during the week of 9-15 May 2022.
A number of resources have been developed to assist Neighbourhood and Community Centres in NSW to plan and promote their activities for NCW 2022. Material in the Resource Pack include:
- Events and activities ideas guide
- Logos and editable media releases, flyer, poster, invitation letters
- 'I Love' photo signs
- Email signature
- Facebook cover graphic
- Social media tiles
