The Borough of Queenscliffe is quite unique as it is the third smallest government area in Victoria covering an area of 36 sq kilometres. Their vision for the Borough is a vibrant, safe and welcoming community that draws inspiration and life from our heritage, unique environment and connection to the sea.
OUR HISTORY A small group of enthusiastic local residents in 1985 started QNH. Over the years we have been located in a variety of buildings around the town. Since 2010 we have called 3 Tobin Drive home and absolutely love our position facing the bay. The light and the views inspire our many Art programs.
HOW ARE WE FUNDED? The Queenscliffe Neighbourhood House receives funding from a range of sources. The State Government Department of Health and Human Services contribute towards the Co-ordinators' salaries and some on- costs. The Borough of Queenscliffe provides the venue and its maintenance. A range of grants are applied for throughout the year. The Committee of Management is involved in fundraising activities for specific projects and to ensure the financial viability of the organisation.
QNH prepares a strategic plan every 3 years. The most recent is 2018 - 2020 and includes a vision statement, mission statement, values/aims/objectives, pillars, goals and tasks.
Annual reports are produced and presented to the community after the close of each calendar year. Here are links to the last two annual reports - 2018 and annual_report_2019_word_doc.pdf
Our 2019 Community Needs Assessment provided feedback from our community on current programs and services offered by QNH. Residents and stakeholders had a say about the current and future needs of residents so QNH can now plan to provide relevant programs and services as the needs of the community change over time. Here is the Executive Summary for the 2019 Community Needs Assessment
The Department of Health and Human Services develops and delivers policies, programs and services and enhance the well-being of all Victorians. They provide funding for Co-ordinator hours at Queenscliffe Neighbourhood House
