Celebrations will include the launch of the new booklet The History of NNIC from 1978 to 2008 and the official opening of the newly renovated premises, which include new office spaces and a community workshop/meeting area.

Two projects will also be introduced. The first is the Nimbin Integrated Service Delivery Project, which includes the establishment of a nurse practitioner position to provide community-based services to clients with a dual diagnosis (mental health issues as well as drug and/or alcohol issues).

The second project is the Brighter Futures Program, a voluntary project offering intensive support for an average period of two years to local families who are vulnerable or have young children.

The celebrations kick off at 11am in Alsopp Park, right next to the centre.
