Blacktown Combined Interagency


Established over thirty years ago, the Blacktown Combined Interagency (BCI) is a monthly meeting organised and chaired by CRN as a forum for workers, volunteers, students and interested stakeholders from the community sector.


The BCI’s purpose is to provide a platform for attendees to engage in thoughtful, stimulating conversations around the key issues and changes affecting the community services sector in Blacktown and beyond. The aim is that attendees leave with a greater understanding of the larger policies and structures governing and affecting their work. And that the knowledge, expertise and information shared by attendees at these meetings will lead to a stronger, more resilient and resourceful community sector.


  • To gain a better understanding of the specific nature of communities you work in.
  • A chance to share knowledge, expertise and resources.
  • To find peer support.
  • To keep informed of political, economic and social changes.
  • To hear from guest speakers from the broader community services sector.
  • To stay up-to-date with community sector changes.
  • An opportunity to form partnerships.


  • BCI Meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month (except January) and run from 9:00am – 11:30am.
  • Unless advertised otherwise, meetings are held in the Nirimba Room on Level 5, Blacktown City Council, 62 Flushcombe Road, Blacktown NSW 2148.
