About us

RCLC provides spaces and opportunities for people to connect, contribute and communicate. As a neighborhood house we support a community development approach, by working closely with local people to provide a range of inclusive programs activities and events. Our aim is to create a stronger and more vibrant community.

Connect with your community through our social courses and events.

Contribute your passion, skills and time by volunteering with us.

Communicate your ideas on programs, events and what you want to see more of in our community.


If you’re looking for a friendly, fun and creative way to connect with your neighbours and community a little more during the lockdown, RCLC is proud to present our R U OK? DAY inspired printable card to pop into the letterbox of a fellow Richmond-ite and spread a little joy and colour. Print it out double-sided, fold, decorate, fill in, and you’re ready to go! An excellent way for kids as well as adults to show some support to others throughout this time.
