Celebrating 30 years & onwards!

Yes, this year we celebrate our 30 year Anniversary of providing programs, services and activities to the community it serves. With a sole mission to provide a safe, friendly haven where one can find support, friendship and connectedness to promote a sense of belonging, Kariong Neighbourhood Centre has long advocated for the needs of its community and those in our Central Coast Hinterland communities.

Committed to the highest of values Kariong Neighbourhood Centre strives to be a place of continuous improvement, enduring quality and strength.

Our longevity is a testament to the dedication, high standards for excellence and support of the many Board, staff, volunteers, services, agencies and organisations who have worked and continue to work with us. Their dedication and commitment serve as a vital link in the chain which drives our operation.

To YOU our valued community who have journeyed with us, we send a huge, bear hug Thank You. The successful growth of Kariong Neighbourhood Centre is the result of YOU who have continued to support the work we do. People are and always will be our greatest asset.

We know that our growth and success is dependent on having devoted and capable team members who are passionate about meeting the needs of all our clients. Together, we look with interest, enthusiasm and excitement as to what the future holds for Kariong Neighbourhood Centre. But one thing is for sure, where not planning on going anywhere, so as long as you need us will be here for you.

Thank You
