Northside Community Forum

We are the secretariat for the Northside Community Forum which brings together 75 community groups that operate in our catchment area. The Forum collectively develops actions, campaigns and works on issues affecting the community and community based organisations. The Forum was established in 2002.

The work of Northside Community Forum is overseen by a Steering Committee, which is elected by the Forum members. If you are a local community organisation or a group working in the area you can become a member: Please click here to view the membership application form.
