NCNS offers a range of early intervention and social inclusion programs for families and children in neighbourhoods across Penrith. Our programs operate as mini service hubs, taking every opportunity to promote participation in early education, engage in fun literacy activities, and to refer families to targeted services – to get support early, and reduce the number of children at risk of significant harm.

Our work is diverse – taking place in community centres, schools, shops and parks from Glenmore Park & South Penrith to Kingswood Park & Cranebrook.
