Neighbourhood House Week is an annual national celebration, recognising the important contribution over 1,000 neighbourhood houses make in local communities across Australia.
In 2022 it will take place from Monday 9 to Sunday 15 May with the theme ‘Building resilience by bringing people together’.
The theme recognises the important role neighbourhood houses will play in a post-lockdown environment, as Victoria aims to re-emerge and rebuild a harmonious and resilient community. After the lockdowns which saw so many people feeling vulnerable and isolated, as a sector, we look to rebuild those social connections that many people lost, building stronger and more resilient communities than ever before.
We encourage all neighbourhood houses to host events and activities during Neighbourhood House Week to celebrate our wonderful sector!
