South West Network of Neighbourhood Houses (Auspiced by Hamilton Community House Inc.)

Networks

There are 16 Regional Neighbourhood House Networks across the State. At the local or Network level they provide support and advocacy for Houses and Centres in that Network. They are autonomous, community-managed and incorporated bodies. Their work is varied and complex, and reflects the requirements of member houses and centres, their communities, the broader sector, and the community at large.

Networks are also an integral part of the NH and LC sector. Their relationships with their member houses and centres, with each other and with the ANHLC, other organisations and the broader community are an essential element of the sector.

Networks play a key role in representing the views and needs of members and act as an interface between members and the ANHLC, local government and state governments, other organisations and the broader community.

Their governance and operational training and support enhance the capacity of their members to operate effectively to meet funding requirements and local community needs.

Networks receive recurrent funding from DHS and in some cases from local government. Many Networks also access a variety of other sources for diverse project funding. Membership numbers, geographical size and number of hours funded vary widely.

Networks are funded for 10 to 36 staff hours or the equivalent per week and have a membership of 9 to 70 Houses/Centres.

The SWN meets February, April, June, August, October and December at rotating locations.

The Network covers the shires of Corangamite, Glenelg, Moyne, Southern Grampians and Warrnambool City.
