Community Courses are designed to bring people together to connect, learn and contribute in our local community through social, educational, recreational and support activities, by using a unique community development approach. Community development starts by identifying and addressing our communities needs. Like all communities we have existing strengths and assets that can be part of the solution. People from all walks of life are welcome. These courses and programs are inclusive and aim to create opportunities for individuals and groups, to enrich lives through connections that might not otherwise take place, to strengthen networks and building social capital.

- Involve the community and encouraging participation and inclusion, and valuing diversity and difference at all levels of neighbourhood house operation
