Neighbourhood Centre Week

Neighbourhood Centre Week is a nationwide initiative to celebrate the role of Neighbourhood Centres in local communities and across the nation.

In 2020, the theme for Neighbourhood Centre Week is ‘Loneliness: the solution is community’. Recent research has found 1 in 4 Australians are lonely, and that the ‘loneliness epidemic’ has significant social, health and economic impacts.

Neighbourhood centres by their very nature help combat loneliness by providing a space for people to meet and form meaningful connections through participation in community programs and projects.

We encourage all Neighbourhood and Community Centres across New South Wales to hold events and activities from 8-15 May.
