Newtown Neighbourhood Centre supports people through community action and provision of services to address their need, focusing on the disadvantaged and vulnerable members in the community. The centre provides services to the aged, people with disabilities, people with mental illness, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and people on low incomes.
These services include providing information and advice on community and public services, emergency accommodation, aged services, council services, children's services, and a variety of other support services.
