Central Coast Neighbourhood Centre Alliance

There are 11 Neighbourhood Centres and Community Centres on the Central Coast. These centres have formed a group that meets regularly to collaborate and plan for collective impact.

Surfside Church

TNC is very grateful to Surfside for their generous donations towards our material assistance programs. They've made regular cash donations as well as a large donation in 2017 at Christmas to help provide Christmas Voucher Packs to disadvantaged families.

Food Care Vouchers for St Vincent De Paul

Since 2012 the St Vincent de Paul Society purchased vouchers for their clients to spend at Lakes Food Care. Vouchers spent in our charity food store represent better value for money than vouchers spent in the major food chains and therefore are a lot more meaningful to the client. Our partnership with the St Vincent de Paul Society is on-going and mutually beneficial. TNC wish to thank the St Vincent de Paul Society for their continuing support of our ground-breaking social enterprise.

Central Coast Connect Day

Held annually, Connect Day offers homeless and disadvantaged individuals the opportunity to access services in one common place on a single day. Organisations and services from the Central Coast and nationally, come together to provide information, free services and give-aways. Free meals and sample bags are distributed and Government Departments such as Births, Deaths and Marriages offer free services like FREE Birth Certificate Applications.
