COMMUNITY & NEIGHBOURHOOD SERVICES
Our Community & Neighbourhood Services aim to bring people together to build stronger communities where all people feel included and supported. Our three Neighbourhood Centres are safe and welcoming community hubs, open to everyone to use as a place to come and be heard, be supported, be connected and belong.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to government restrictions, our face-to-face community groups, activities, room hire and events have been suspended, and our Neighbourhood Centres have reduced opening hours. We are still here for you and taking your calls between 9am and 4pm weekdays. We have some new services including social phone call service and a virtual community room for groups, so please get in touch to find out how we can support you during this time.

GRAFFITI REMOVAL SERVICE
Belong Blue Mountains supports a Graffiti Removal Service run by an amazing team of volunteers who work to remove tags and other unlawful graffiti as quickly as possible to discourage repeat offenders and keep our mountains beautiful.
A Blue-Mountains-wide alliance has been formed under volunteer coordinator Greg Birtles of the Hazelbrook Association with the Lower Mountains Volunteer Coordinator John Oakey. This service has the support of our local Police Force and the Blue Mountains City Council, and is funded by the NSW Department of Communities & Justice.
Please report any graffiti you see anywhere in the Blue Mountains as soon as possible to the
