Nundah Community Enterprises Co-operative (NCEC) currently maintains 26 public parks on the north side of Brisbane, the Nundah Village Street Scape and The old Victoria Park Golf Clubhouse in Herston.
NCEC’s relationship with Brisbane City Council (BCC) was established in 2001 with the development of a flexible contractual tool (Memorandum Of Understanding). The development of The Parks Project is a reflection of Council’s commitment to include marginalised groups in community and foster social procurement opportunities.
NCEC also have a contract with Transport and Main Roads Queensland (TMR) to mow and maintain open areas on the north side of Brisbane. More recently NCEC have partnered with Mental Illness Fellowship of Queensland (MIFQ) around the maintenance of their beautiful new office space and grounds at the former Victoria Park Golf Course Club House opposite the Royal Brisbane Hospital. The success of these contracts has been instrumental in the development and growth of NCEC. These contracts provide NCEC members, who may have previously been excluded from employment, with regular income, job security and training.
With the assistance of various grants over the years from Paul Newman Foundation, Jupiter’s Casino Community Benefit Fund and BCC, NCEC has been able to purchase equipment to meet the demand of increased contracts.
The NCEC Parks crew are a hardworking, multi-skilled group of people who are committed to their jobs and the service they provide for the community. They constantly embrace the challenge of mastering new skills.
The NCEC Parks crew are sometimes available to do private jobs for residents and businesses on the north side of Brisbane.
We’re looking to grow:
We are seeking additional commercial maintenance contracts and are looking to expand our parks division to provide employment to more disadvantaged workers, if you are aware of an opportunity please contact us.
