NCQ and Griffith University joined forces in 2020 and 2021 to research Community Development in the Queensland Neighbourhood Centre context. The Griffith Research team consisted of Dr Ann Ingamells, Helen Betts and Natasha Odgers who have had extensive involvement in the Neighbourhood Centre sector.

Research also featured a number of Community Development practitioners including Maria Tennant, Bea Rogan and Carmel Daveson AM. The research was supported by NCQ infrastructure, networks and staffing. A Report ‘Enhancing Community Development in Neighbourhood Centres’ was launched by Belinda Drew, CEO of CSIA, at the Ship Inn on 19th October, 2021.
