Established in the early 1970s, Neighbourhood Houses Victoria is the peak body for the neighbourhood house and learning centres sector, representing a membership of more than 400 entities. We provide strategic leadership, effective state-wide advocacy, quality research, and timely advice on relevant policy and legislative developments. We support our sector to remain informed, upskilled and connected. We also aim to promote the benefits of neighbourhood houses in supporting and empowering local communities. Our vision is to support and encourage strong, safe and vibrant communities that value diversity and gender equity.
