Governance

Home Our History Governance

The Neighbourhood Centre Board enables the Centre to deliver its services to Coopers Plains and the surrounding suburbs. A big part of our job is ensuring that our Centre is collaborating with stakeholders who help us to deliver good services to a diverse range of clients.

State and Federal governments provide much of our funding. Our clients also pay a fee for the services they receive and we run a Thrift Shop which boosts our income stream. The Board ensures all of its income delivers a public benefit.  We regularly report to Government how we spend the public money delivering the services we are contracted to provide.

The Board plans for the long term sustainability of our Centre. We are always on the lookout for people who can partner with us to help keep our great services flowing to our clients. Sometimes clubs and trusts financially support our charitable purposes. Those funds can help us trial new programmes or purchase new equipment for our Centre.
Our Board is diligent about complying with all relevant legislation and we are proud to govern a Centre that is clean and safe and continuously improving the services we deliver to our Coopers Plains residents and the surrounding district.
