“A great conference - I felt challenged, inspired and connected”


The NHVic Conference is an annual highlight for Victoria’s neighbourhood house sector, proudly brought to you by the state peak body Neighbourhood Houses Victoria.

Now in it's 32nd year, the conference brings together neighbourhood house managers, staff and committee members, and other relevant stakeholders in the community services sector, to be inspired, learn something new, network and celebrate the life-changing work of our houses.

Attendees are treated to a diverse program of activities including keynotes and presentations, breakout workshops, lightning talks, awards and a gala dinner.
