Other Services at The Neighbourhood Centre
The Neighbourhood Centre
Offers an information and referral service that helps people find information they need on:community services, local associations, self help groups and leisure activities.
It is a great place for those who are new to Bathurst and want to access local networks and services; also for those who have a need or query and are not sure where to go for help or support.
For those who wish to expand their interests and activities or wish to contribute to the community through volunteering, The Neighbourhood Centre can help you investigate the possibilities.

Access policy. Approximately one hundred other community groups use the services of The Neighbourhood Centre in a range of ways. Although we request a donation for the use of rooms and office space, it is purely voluntary, as we wish to make our service accessible to all and would not like to exclude any group or individual on any basis particularly financial.
