Welcome to the new website for Neighbourhood Houses

We're excited to finally announce the launch of a fresh, revitalised and simplified website for the Network of Neighbourhood Houses.  The website compliments the recent publication of the Handbook for Neighbourhood House boards, the Strategic Framework, and a set of new governance videos, also being launched today.

The website continues to offer the same information primarily for managers, board members, other staff and volunteers. It continues to be a useful portal to find out what else is going on in the Network of Neighbourhood Houses across Tasmania.

Neighbourhood Houses Submission to NewStart Inquiry

Earlier this week the Australian Neighbourhood Houses and Centres Association (ANHCA) submitted a response to the Parliamentary Inquiry into Newstart.

This is a significant step forward for ANHCA and demonstrates the interest, commitment and shared vision of the state peak bodies.

Neighbourhood Houses Tasmania (NHT) (and the Network of Houses) are members of ANHCA.  This means we are part of a huge network of 1000 Neighbourhood Houses and Centres across Australia.
