About Us

Blackheath Area Neighbourhood Centre is dedicated to improving the quality of life for residents in the Upper Blue Mountains.

Together, our members, volunteers and staff are building a resilient, supportive and active community where everyone is included, and no-one is left behind. 

For over thirty years we have implemented programs and provided support in the Upper Mountains. Governed by a Board of local residents, we formulate strategies and policies with member input. We encourage all residents to join us as members and welcome the contribution of their views and ideas. Together, we make a flourishing, creative, and resilient community.
