DBNC is a community hub that provides a range of activities and services for locals.

We work collaboratively with other community stakeholders, local residents and groups to build community capacity. Our core mission is to be a catalyst in the community for empowering locals to achieve their goals, and to advocate for change on issues that impact the community and its people.

We do this by offering a range of services, activities and initiatives that increase social inclusion, employment and community development, locally in D’Bay.

DBNC has strong ties to the community, having emerged from a grassroots movement in the 1990’s to support community needs. In early-1992 a local group began to meet informally, and by May the first public meeting of 50-plus residents was held. Soon after, a steering committee was formed to manage the incorporation of the centre and develop its future direction.

History of DBNC

DBNC officially opened in July 1992 and achieved incorporation by November 1992. We continue to be governed by a strong management committee made up of community members that drive the centre’s vision and approach from the local perspective.

DBNC is a well-respected, key service provider in D’Bay, where community members can come for a broad range of services. Over the past 27 years, we’ve developed and delivered a range of programs that serve the need of the community. We aim to provide locals who are vulnerable and impacted by hardship with access to multiple pathways that enable them to move toward their life goals.
