Neighbourhood House Week
Neighbourhood House Week, happening across Australia in the second full week of May each year, is a nationwide initiative to celebrate the role of over 1,000 Neighbourhood and Community Houses and Centres. In New South Wales, Queensland, and Western Australia, it is referred to as Neighbourhood Centre Week, and in South Australia it is referred to as Community Centre Week.
This year will be celebrated from 13 to 19 May 2024, and the theme is 'Stronger Together'.
Celebrate Neighbourhood and Community Houses and Centres (NCHC) Week with the empowering theme "Stronger Together"! This week is a tribute to the incredible strength that blossoms when diverse individuals unite for a common purpose. As Helen Keller wisely said, "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."
Neighbourhood and Community Houses and Centres (NCHCs) all throughout Australia are the heart of the local community. We strive to embody the essence of togetherness. We bring people from all walks of life together to connect, learn, and play. Through collaborative initiatives, inclusive programs, and shared spaces, we cultivate an environment where every voice is heard, every story is valued, and every member contributes to the vibrant mosaic of our shared community.
This week, join us in simple acts of togetherness—whether it's a shared meal, a collaborative project, or just a friendly chat. Together, we'll explore the incredible strength that emerges when we stand side by side. Let's celebrate community, weaving stronger bonds that make our neighborhood a wonderous place to call home!
