Welcome to Blackheath Area Neighbourhood Centre!

Blackheath Area Neighbourhood Centre (BANC) is a not-for-profit community based organisation based in the upper Blue Mountains at Blackheath. We provide a range of services to the local community and to the wider Blue Mountains community.

BANC supports activities and services that enhance communities. We do this through the provision of programs that empower people to improve the quality of their life and realise their potential. We seek to be inclusive, help people connect, and build community resilience.

BANC offers emergency food relief. We have frozen meals, a community pantry, and Coles food vouchers. Please call for an appointment if seeking vouchers.

Drop in and see us!

Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and listen to our radio show The Blackheath Hour on Radio Blue Mountains every Thursday at 10:00am.

BANC acknowledges the Darug and the Gundungurra Nations as the traditional custodians of this land.
