Skead House Neighbourhood Centre


When people face problems they turn first to their family, friends and neighbours.

Neighbourhood Centres are an extension of this local family support and network and Skead House offers a friendly place where clients and community are always welcome.

About Skead House


Skead House Neighbourhood Centre is a community based organisation providing a range of information referral and support services for the people of the Inner West (Burwood, Ashfield, Strathfield, Canada Bay and beyond).

Neighbourhood Centres are different from other more bureaucratic services which often only deal with one part of the person because Neighbourhood Centres are from the community. We do not stigmatise or marginalise individuals or groups whose needs are greater. We intergregate a range of services and activities into one organisation which is accessible to all communities.

We are a member of the Local Community Services Association (LCSA) a peak body for neighbourhood and community centres in NSW. We work accordingly to the Neighbourhood Centre Policies.

Neighbourhood Centres are based on the belief that local action can affect local issues and concerns these changes can influence wider change and development.
