starts with you

The answer to the problem of isolation is community.

We are an independent, not-for-profit organisation committed to serving the community throughout the Northern Beaches. We have been here since 1977: available with our time to build connections and strengthen community. We used to be called Manly Community Centre. We’re still in Manly, doing exactly the same thing we’ve been doing for 40yrs!
