We love Northbridge! We invest our time and energy to bring our community together through events and activities, and fun place making projects. We build strong networks and empower each other to celebrate everything our unique and vibrant neighbourhood has to offer.

We partner with the City of Vincent,
the City of Perth and other supporters
to advocate for positive change and
promote all the great happenings
on our hood. We are one of many
neighbourhood groups supported by the

Town Team Movement.
