Shellharbour Connect

Shellharbour Connect Banner 1‘Shellharbour Connect’ is a new online hub that allows community and sporting groups / organisations to list their details on an online community directory. The site is also a great opportunity to post information about upcoming projects, events, training and funding happening across the Shellharbour area.

However to make Shellharbour Connect a success we need people like you to use the site & spread the word! So we need Champions from the Community Services sector who will take on the role of maintaining & updating your services profile on the Shellharbour Connect page.

If you would like to become a Shellharbour Connect Champion we can provide extra training & support so you can get the most out of the website!

Please contact us at if you want to take this on role! Your community will thank you for it!
