Sunbury Neighbourhood Housei s a not-for-profit Sunbury based Neighbourhood House that has been serving the community since 1996. We are an independent organization, committed to providing low-cost programs and activities to the local community in an environment that is safe, accessible and inclusive, that promotes gathering, lifelong learning and social connection.
SNH governance structure includes an independently elected volunteer Board of Management, adhering to the Rules of Association. As a registered charity, we rely on the support of the community to make a difference. We are community-led, responsive to the needs of our community, and regularly seek out donations, grant applications, and fund-raising opportunities.
Our organization is a recipient of the State Government’s Neighbourhood House Coordination Funding (NHCP), as well as the Hume City Council Neighbourhood House and Community Centres Annual Grant.
SNH is staffed by 4 part time staff members, volunteers and facilitators and operates 50 out of 52 weeks a year, which means we are closed on public holidays and for two weeks over the Christmas and New Year period. Our organization is open for six days a week, from Monday to Saturday, offering programs and activities from morning till evening. This allows us to accommodate the schedules of community members and provide access to our programs at desired times. We understand how important it is for our community to have access to our programs and activities and we strive to make our organization as accessible as possible. Our commitment to serving our community extends beyond our operational hours, and we are always looking for ways to improve and expand our services.
You can find us within the Sunbury Community Centre along with CareWorks Inc at 531 Elizabeth Drive Sunbury.
