What we do

Our purpose is to build a strong and inclusive community in Surry Hills – it has been since 1978. Our dedicated team is here to provide a safe, healthy and caring environment where people can connect, access support, learn new things, and give to others. Everything we do is driven by respect and social justice and is a celebration of equality and diversity.

Help Our organisation by Donating Today

All donations go directly to support our community programs.

Long Day Care

In the world as it is today, children give us a priceless gift – they remind us that wonderful things are everywhere! You and your child have an exciting journey ahead, and at our Centre we are grateful to be part of this journey.

Combining love for old-world values with the exciting principles of modern day education, we aim to inspire the children in our care to be creative and to enjoy discovery and learning.

Provided by the Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre – proudly serving the community for over 40 years.

Become a Volunteer

The Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre wouldn’t be half of what it is without our wonderful volunteers and members. While we receive some government funding and support, these resources don’t cover all the important services we offer. Become a volunteer and make a positive impact on your local community – and reap benefits and gain fulfilment from being active and socially engaged, too!
