Neighbourhood Centres Queensland are excited to host Neighbourhood Centre State Wide Gathering at the Queensland Community Development Conference.
Neighbourhood Centres are experts at building local community, relationships, networks and support. The State-Wide gathering is an opportunity for us to come together and do that with one another. We will celebrate who we are and build a sense of connection and community together.
Where: Sandstone Point Hotel, 1800 Bribie Island Rd, Sandstone Point QLD 4511
When: Monday 16th October 2023 (The Qld CD Conference starts on the night of 16th October and runs until 18th October)
Time: 9:00am to 4pm
Who: Neighbourhood Centre staff/volunteers involved in centre coordination or community development.
Registrations: Open Now
Neighbourhood Centres are also strongly encouraged to present at the conference. Further details and registrations for the Queensland Community Development Conference can be found on the conference website.
Centres seeking affordable accommodation at the conference are advised to share accommodation at Sandstone Point with other centres or seek accommodation at Ballara on Bribie Island which is very close to the venue.
NCQ has applied for a grant from the Gambling Benefit Fund to reimburse Neighbourhood Centres outside of SE Qld to attend the Qld CD Conference. If successful, NCQ will be able to reimburse centres $300 towards a conference ticket plus a travel allowance for one person. The grant will not cover accommodation. The success of this grant is not guaranteed and is still under review.
