The Central Highlands Community House Network of Neighbourhood Houses (CHCHN) supports and advocates on behalf of thirteen Neighbourhood Houses and Community Centres in Grampians region. We are located across the Shires of Ararat, Pyrenees, Hepburn, Moorabool, Golden Plains and the City of Ballarat.

Our Neighbourhood House Network links houses and local communities to other houses and communities at a regional level and facilitate:

  • individual support and resourcing to their members
  • early identification and support of neighbourhood houses experiencing difficulty
  • regional collaboration on issues, needs and projects among the membership
  • representation and advocacy on regional issues and needs to the ANHLC, and local and state governments.

CHCHN is a member of the sector's peak body Neighbourhood Houses Victoria https://www.nhvic.org.au/
