Kingston East Neighbourhood Group
Kingston East Neighbourhood Group, or KENG, is a much-loved community space in the heart of Kingston.
The vibrant and busy neighbourhood centre delivers services from craft groups to food relief, childcare and playgroups to counselling – and it’s like a second home to the many people who visit it.
KENG partners with a range of government organisations and not for profits to deliver programs and assist the community – but it’s the warm welcome and smiling staff that people remember most.
Access Community Gateway, Logan Central
The Access Gateway is a place where new arrivals to Australia and longtime locals can build friendships, hang out and take part in some fun activities. There’s connections to groups and support for many people at all stages of life – and for families, this includes links to maternity hubs for mums and bubs, playgroups in schools across Logan, and more. The Gateway is just that – a space to find out about the community connections available across the city.
