QFCA Membership

The QFCA is a body that supports and leads local Neighbourhood and Community Centres throughout Queensland.   The sector's strong tradition of local citizen-led place based community development is central to the organisation and we invite potential members to join with us in this tradition. Our principles are also consistent with the national peak body of Neighbourhood Centres - the Australian Neighbourhood Houses and Centres Association (ANHCA) whose principles can be found here.   

Membership is also open to any organisation that provides services which align with the objects of the constitution of the Association, and the principles inferred therein.

These principles include;​

  • Integrity and good conduct

  • ​Fair Employment Practices

  • ​Financial Accountability

Our constitution stipulates that prospective members need a proposer and a seconder.

If you're a neighbourhood or community centre in Queensland and are interested in membership please contact the Executive Officer Geoff Roberson on 0439 600 136 or at eo@qfca.org.au
