We work in partnership with community groups in the area, assisting them to deliver programs or projects, last year we helped the Brown Paper Bag Project, the Macedon Ranges Reconciliation Group, the Macedon Ranges Suicide Prevention Action Group, Food is Free Macedon Ranges and Polyphonics Choir deliver various events particular to their purpose.

The House is part of a whole network of neighbourhood houses and learning centres across the state and, in fact, Australia. Our peak body is Neighbourhood Houses Victoria, they advocate to government regarding funding levels and conditions and reporting requirements, and disseminate information about the sector through publications, conferences and partnerships. We have our local network, one of 16 across the state, the Regional Association of Neighbourhood and Community Houses (RANCH), which supports the governance and professional development of 28 houses across the Loddon Murray region in the Shires of Macedon Ranges, Mount Alexander, Central Goldfields, Greater Bendigo, Loddon and Campaspe. RANCH has sub-networks and ours includes the five other houses in the Macedon Ranges, Kyneton Community and Learning Centre, Lancefield Neighbourhood House, Romsey Neighbourhood House, Riddells Creek Neighbourhood House and Macedon Ranges Further Education Centre (Gisborne). Both Kyneton and Gisborne are Learn Local providers and we work in partnership with them to offer job readiness or education pathway courses for our community.
