Finding a Place to Belong
The Lower Mountains Neighbourhood Centre (LMNC) is based at the Blaxland Community Centre (just next door to the library) and has been providing services to the Lower Mountains community since 1981. It has a commitment to the enhancement of wellbeing, connection and belonging within the community.
Have you ever had an issue that you can’t resolve and wished you had one place to call? LMNC is a community hub with a wealth of information about services in the community. If they don’t know, they can help you find out.
Have you ever wanted to be more connected with other people? LMNC has a range of social and wellbeing groups that you can tap into. Their newest activity is their monthly pancake mornings for the whole family where you can drop in at 7:30am to 9:00am for a cuppa, a pancake and a chat! Or come any time to LMNC’s drop-in space for tea, coffee and free wi-fi.
Do you know any older people who could do with some social support? LMNC can help.
There are special events and programs such as workshops and the Blaxland disco for people living with a disability. The next Think BIG! Community forum, with the renowned social researcher Hugh Mackay, is coming up on Saturday 3 November from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. This will be a great opportunity for discussion and new ideas.
It is an exciting time in LMNC’s history. They are soon to be joining with the Mid Mountains and Katoomba Neighbourhood Centres to form one organisation called Belong Blue Mountains. Each neighbourhood centre will continue to provide a safe and welcoming place for people to connect with each other, find the information that they need, and find a sense of belonging.
