Neighbourhbood Centre Week

Neighbourhood Centre Week, happening 8-15 May 2020, 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.
