Blackheath area neighborhood centre 02

The Blackheath Area Neighbourhood centre exists to enhance the quality of life of all residents of Blackheath and surrounding areas. Together, our members, volunteers and staff are building a resilient, supportive and active community where everyone is included and no-one is left behind.

Incorporated under the Incorporated Associations Act of 1984 on 27 January 1993, Blackheath Area Neighbourhood Centre Inc. is governed by a Board of local residents who set strategies and policies with the input of our members. All local residents are encouraged to become members and add their views and ideas to our decision-making.
