Workshops & Courses

Neighbourhood Collective works across Australia to increase community wellbeing and connection via workshops, training, leadership support, mentoring and consultancy. Our work is founded on Asset Based Community Development principles and we share the lessons learnt, innovation and solutions that have made the Old Church such as successful and vibrant community hub over the last eight years. Our training and consultancy work is generally fee for service, but occasionally we are able to offer pro bono support when we are funded by other sources (such as government grants). To find out more, please get in touch here.
