We’re celebrating Neighbourhood House Week!

Neighbourhood Houses and Community Centres across the City of Melton are celebrating Neighbourhood House Week 2022 with an exciting range of free activities.

Neighbourhood House Week is an annual national celebration, recognising the important contribution over 1,000 neighbourhood houses make in local communities across Australia.

Lockdowns have left many people feeling vulnerable and isolated, our Neighbourhood Houses and Community centres are working to rebuild those social connections that many people lost in order to build stronger and more resilient communities than ever before.

Activities available during Neighbourhood House week will offer opportunities for community to connect, learn, have fun and try something new.

All available programs are listed below, you can also browse them HERE via our website or HERE via PDF.
