Community

Working with you in your Neighbourhood

We support our community’s diverse groups and neighbourhoods to shape a safe, attractive and vibrant City. Penrith City is a Refugee Welcome Zone - in 2008 we signed a declaration welcoming refugees and supporting their human rights. We're involved in community engagement, social planning, grants programs, place-making and community events and initiatives. Penrith has a proud community spirit and loves to celebrate its people and strengths. We work together in partnership with a positive, 'can do' attitude to achieve shared goals.
