Who we are?

Shoalhaven Neighbourhood Services Inc (SNS) is a place of community activity and involvement that has been operating in the Shoalhaven area since 1977.

SNS believes that all people have an equal right to access opportunities, resources and power within their community to enable them to reach their full potential as individuals and as community members.

SNS promotes and enables a diverse and inclusive community and strengthens unity, through representation and advocacy.

Our Social Support & NDIS programs link older people and/or those with a disability with a volunteer or worker to provide a range of social and support services in the community. We can also provide a Dementia Monitoring Program where required.

Our two Neighbourhood Centres, in Nowra and East Nowra, are community hubs that provide residents with a range of services including:

  • Information and referral
  • Access to affordable and accessible rooms
  • Training, education and well-being programs
  • Social support

In addition we focus on building capacity in our local community by providing relevant programs and support in partnership with community members and other services.

SNS is managed by a Committee of annually-elected local residents and welcomes new people to:

  • Become a Member
  • Join the management committee
  • Use any of our services
  • Become a volunteer with any or all of our services
  • Drop in to see what’s going on in the community, seek information, use our computers, photocopier, fax, use our baby change/feeding spaces, or just have a ‘cuppa’.
