Let's work together to make great ideas a reality


Ideas can come from anywhere and anyone – turning those ideas into reality means finding great partners to work with, whether they be individuals or groups.

Community Development

In partnership with other individuals and groups, Dungog Shire Community Centre helps to build and deliver programs that respond to local issues and needs.

The Community Garden, Community Kitchen, even Neighbourcare grew out of such partnerships.

Groups we’ve joined with include the schools, Rotary and Lions Clubs, Salvation Army, Samaritans, NeighbourCare and the Chamber of Commerce. Working together, we aim always to enhance well being and bring about local positive change.


Auspicing, Grant Support and Project Alliances

The Community Centre will sometimes auspice projects organised by individuals and groups. Local Living Dungog is one recent example – they hold those fresh food markets every Saturday morning.  

If you have an idea, we can provide guidance, grant writing assistance, letters of support, an insurance umbrella and some marketing assistance. For various reasons, not every group or project can be supported.
