RCC History

Riverwood Community Centre History

RCC has always been an organisation with the capacity to assess its context and respond creatively to change.

Over 40 years ago, the RCC Board was in fierce debate over whether to apply for a Council grant to purchase a much-needed bus to transport vulnerable community members to important appointments or to engage a social worker to assess needs and opportunities in the community. The latter option won the day, by barely a vote. If the vote had gone the other way, RCC might not be where it is today. A bus could have provided RCC with immediate gratification of responding to a specific need in a very practical way, yet
a social worker facilitated strategic positioning for future opportunities, leading to further funding.

“Proudly delivering accessible, high quality
services in our community since 1974”
