Now, more than ever, as our whole community faces challenging and uncertain times, we renew our focus on empowering the people and communities we work with.
Ever present in our minds, is the reality that many of the vulnerable families and communities we work with – will be faced with compounding challenges.
In particular we acknowledge the significant health and life expectancy gap for Aboriginal community members as a result of colonisation – we are extremely motivated to lessen and minimise the impact of COVID-19 for the Aboriginal people we work with across Nepean Blue Mountains and Western Sydney. Across all our program areas, the NCNS team are working hard to explore new ways to provide continuity of connection and care.
All our staff are available to assist you – If you require support or assistance – contact us by phone, email or message us on Facebook. Please check in to get up-to-date information and call, email, or message us for support.

Best wishes – the NCNS team
NCNS is an innovative grass-roots organisation that works across the Greater Western Sydney, Nepean, Blue Mountains & Lithgow areas.
Our neighbourhood centres and Aboriginal Family Centre are located in the Penrith LGA. We have staff located in Penrith, Katoomba, and Lithgow – and we support clients via our therapeutic programs and care coordination programs from Blacktown to Lithgow. We work through a model of partnership and collaboration, providing quality programs to support disadvantaged and vulnerable members of the local community to enable strength, inclusion and respect.
An important element of our work is provided through Koolyangarra, our Aboriginal Family Centre in Cranebrook – which is the hub for our large range of Aboriginal support and community programs. Youth, parenting, early childhood, family support and community programs are run through our centres at South Penrith, Kingswood Park & Cranebrook.
