NETWORK SERVICES - SUPPORT AND ADVOCACY
Neighbourhood House Networks are funded through the NHCP to provide the following services to Neighbourhood Houses in their Network:
Governance and management support to committees and staff
Advice on neighbourhood house programs and activity development
Training and training resources
Capacity building and links, with and between Neighbourhood Houses and other community organisations and the local and regional level
Networks also play a strategic role at a state level. Network Coordinators meet regularly with our peak body, Neighbourhood Houses Victoria, to work collaboratively on developmental strategies for the whole sector.
The UMRNHN supports 16 Neighbourhood Houses in the Upper Murray Region, and offers a range of services to its members. Most of these are part of the free membership offered by the Network.
The Network Coordinator is currently funded for 19 hours per week to work across all Houses in the Network, covering over 16,000 sq/km.
