The Settlement Neighbourhood Centre


The Sydney University Settlement Neighbourhood Centre is a long established (127 years) non-for profit community centre based in Darlington NSW that provides a safe space where people can connect. Our main objective is to provide a service that brings people of all socio-economic backgrounds together to share knowledge and culture, encouraging social equality and community cohesion.

We are a safe place. We value and celebrate diversity. We work to create a socially just society where everyone can actively participate in social, economic and community life.

The Settlement provides a number of programs to support and enrich opportunities for children, young people, families, and the community. All program are developed in consultation with the local community and are designed to meet the current needs of participants. The Settlement also opens its doors to a number of community groups to use the facilities in delivering a variety of programs, strengthening connection and access to community participation at little to no cost.

We deliver holistic, client-centred services following best practice guide lines both independently and in partnership with other community groups. Our services include: children's after school and vacation care programs, youth drop in and early intervention for young people and their families, crisis response, support housing, advice and referral and post-crisis support to young people. Adult social inclusion & skill development programs.

Over the past year (FY 2017-18) the Settlement provided a service to over 200 individual children and young people, as well as their families and wider communtity through program participation, individualised support and community development & engagement.

Your support will ensure that the Settlement continues to deliver these free programs and provide local children, young people and families with the support they need and deserve.
