• Networking among centres

WINC usually meets four or five times per year, at different centres
throughout the regions on a rotation basis. One of these meetings
is a two day conference to address training, professional development
and planning issues. Travel to WINC Meetings is reimbursed at the
SACS Award standard rate.
member organisations are usually also members of LCSA ( Local
Community Services Association), which is the Peak Body for Neighbourhood
Centres in NSW. LCSA represents over three hundred organizations
in NSW, and provides valuable support and resourcing to member
