NNIC is in the heart of the Nimbin Community. We are a community based organisation which provides a wide range of services to disadvantaged people (and others) in the Nimbin community.
NNIC is run by locals for the local community.
We are a one-stop-shop for all your welfare service needs, and we run on a drop-in basis. Which means anyone can drop in and see us during our opening hours, and usually you can get an appointment to see our welfare workers on the same day.
You can find our 2022-2023 Annual Report here.

NNIC also undertakes community development activities which aim to strengthen the community as a whole. Since 2008 years the focus of this work has been the development of Nimbin as a sustainable community, particularly in relation to food security, energy efficiency and viable transport, in the face of peak oil and climate change challenges.
