Neighbourhood House Week

Stronger Together 2024

In Australia there are over 1000 Neighbourhood Houses, with over 400 in Victoria alone. These houses form a tight network of community-led organisations which focus on nurturing people and place. In an average week, over 500 people will visit our Neighbourhood House for help, a class or to meet freinds. 

While Neighbourhood Houses across the country all look very different, the basic principles underpinning how a House works with its community are the same. Each House starts with the assumption communities have existing strengths and assets which make them part of the solution – and then together, they work from there.

This week as we celebrate Neighbourhood House 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.
