Monsoon Strategy

We've launched our second Neighbourhood Centre disaster strategy, this time concentrating on the Monsoon Region.

What is a Neighbourhood Centre?

Neighbourhood Houses have been operating around the world for 140 years.  But what are they?

Community Development

We're addressing  the gap in Community Development work in local communities.

Snapshot

138 local Neighbourhood Centres producing $77.8 million in social connections.  1.83million visitors per year.

QFCA alongside Neighbourhood Centres in Far North and North Queensland have just released the Queensland Neighbourhood Centres Strategy for Monsoon Resilience.

 

After the immediate disaster response period, Neighbourhood Centres are there to help affected community members to get back on their feet and rebuild their lives - weeks, months and sometimes years after the event.

 

The development of this Monsoon Resilience Strategy was jointly funded under the Commonwealth/State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements.

Part of a network of over 1000 Neighbourhood Houses and Community Centres across Australia
