About Us

Ararat Neighbourhood House is a not-for-profit, community organisation committed to providing a friendly, welcoming environment for members of the local community and surrounds.  We partner with local service providers to give access to affordable, diverse programs that meet the needs of personal, social and professional development

 

Governance Committee 

Ararat Neighbourhood House has recently appointed a new Governance Committee in March 2020.   Our Governance Committee is made up of community members and representatives from business.

'The best Boards are those that are inclusive, comprising people from all backgrounds and walks of life, and representing a wide variety of views and skills. Good Boards are also strongly representative of their “consumers” – the people they serve. Indeed, while it is important for community groups to reach out to places like the business community to rejuvenate their Boards, it is important that the community itself retains firmly in the driver’s seat. Outcomes are never sustainable unless communities are in control.'
