Northside Connect aims to build and encourage the local aspirations our north Brisbane community. Based in Nundah, we provide services such as legal advice, domestic violence support, practical relief from life stressors as well as a safe place to connect and reinforce the sense of community.
Started by a group of volunteers in November 1991 as the Nundah Community Support Group, our name has changed to reflect the wide range of support we offer the Brisbane north side community however our values and commitment to community remain the same.
Northside Connect employs a small multi-disciplinary team and relies heavily on the generosity of over 60 volunteers to deliver our community-focused services and programs.
Featuring disability access, multifunctional event spaces for community events and facilities for our legal and domestic violence services. We run several events throughout the year that celebrate diversity in our community and are active participants of the annual Nundah Festival.
Northside Connect relies on the generous support and funding from the State and Federal Governments, local businesses, and community initiatives. Our programs are funded through recurrent funding from theDepartment of Communities, Housing and Digital Economy and Federal Attorney General and Queensland Department of Justice and Attorney General through the National Partnership Agreement, with supplementary funding from project and one off funding grants, sponsorship, fundraising and donations.
People, regardless of their own concepts of community, need us. They need us for emergency relief. They need us for legal advice. They need us simply to provide a safe place at a time where for some people, so few of them exist.
Everyone can make a difference in this world. I feel very lucky that I am able to contribute to the community through my involvement at Northside Connect
The Centre is not only a place where the most vulnerable members of our community can come for support & assistance but also a hub for local community members who want to make a positive contribution to their neighbourhood.
The level of support, information and assistance that has been given to me by someone who actually listens, understands and cares about domestic violence survivors after having some terrible experience along my journey, has completely restored my faith in humanity
