The Neighbourhood Ngargee summer program is currently on-hold and will be reviewed as part of the COVID-19 recovery.
Ngargee (Pronounced 'nar-gee' in English) is an Indigenous Australian word meaning 'gathering for celebration'.
We aim to promote social inclusion and connectedness in the community by facilitating opportunities for neighbours to interact with each other. We see Neighbourhood Ngargee (gatherings) as one way for local residents to do this.
Our objective is to:
- support local residents to hold neighbourhood gatherings and events to increase neighbourly awareness and interaction
- create an atmosphere of trust, safety, belonging and social cohesion in the local community
- improve community health and wellbeing.
