In June 2019, Neighbourhood Houses Tasmania and the Tasmanian Government approved a Protocol for working together for the benefit of local communities. The Protocol is a shared commitment for collaboration. It recognises that Neighbourhood Houses are at the heart of our local communities. They are places that allow people to come together in welcoming, safe spaces to work on local needs.

Working together can result in better outcomes for local communities. The Protocol encourages both parties to build and strengthen local partnerships. It encourages Tasmanian Government staff to:

  • Consult and engage where appropriate with Neighbourhood Houses on local, place-based issues and collaborate on solutions
  • Communicate the Protocol with staff and encourage collaboration with Neighbourhood Houses
  • Ensure staff are given enough time where possible to develop effective working relationships with Neighbourhood Houses.
