Rozelle Neighbourhood Centre

The only independent centre in the area we appreciate your support to engage and strengthen our community. 

What we do

Our mission is to build general community wellbeing and to strengthen social inclusion through highly effective programs, services and projects that promote community connectedness and deliver results for vulnerable and disadvantaged groups in the local community.

At the centre we provide access to programs and activities that support specific needs in the community Leisure Options, Community Carers Team, Family Respite And Leisure Access Program, Neighbour Aid, Weekend Respite & Recreation Program 

Acting as a hub the centre connects the locals in the community to information, referral and advocacy with  focus on those socially and financially isolated.

The centre is also an activity space where venue hirers and tutors  engage the community.  There is a lot happening behind our big red door...dancing, yoga, theatre and discussion groups as well as activities for children.  Check out our  Calendar - Whats On for session times and contact details.
