Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge that the activities undertaken at Bennettswood Neighbourhood House occur on the traditional lands of the Warundjeri-baluk people and we pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.

Bennettswood Neighbourhood House is a not-for-profit community organisation governed by a voluntary Committee of Management and operations are delegated to the manager and support staff working under the direction of the manager.

Bennettswood Neighbourhood House gratefully acknowledges funding and in-kind support from the City of Whitehorse Community Partnership Program, the Victorian Government’s Department of Health & Human Services Neighbourhood Houses Coordination Program and other grants and donations.
