Who we are

Terrigal Neighbourhood Centre (TNC) is a not-for-profit, incorporated community organisation. We were established in 2020 by Gosford City Council as part of Green Point-Terrigal Community Services Inc

We have two pop-up centres:

Mondays 10am – 2pm at the Meeting Room near the Erina Library, and

Fridays at the Rotary Hall Duffys Road Terrigal.  Contact Jane 0413 397 716 for availability.

TNC is governed by a volunteer Board of Management voted in at the Annual General Meeting by the members of the organisation.  Our main funding is from the Department of Community and Justice, NSW. We also source funding from other grants where applicable such as Club grants from Club Terrigal which is our major Sponsor
