About Us

Chelsea Neighbourhood House (CNH) had its early beginnings in the mid 1970s, on Broadway in Bonbeach, and became incorporated in 1988. In 2004 CNH relocated to 15 Chelsea Road, Chelsea and became Longbeach PLACE Inc (LBP).

‘PLACE” is an acronym for Professional, Local, Adult Community Education.’

Who we are

Longbeach PLACE Inc. works closely with a broad cross-section of local residents and community groups in Chelsea, creating an inclusive environment within the City of Kingston and its neighbouring suburbs. LBP Inc. responds to community needs by providing a range of structured educational programs, social activities, and special interest support groups. The programs and activities are developed through community consultation and are delivered by qualified facilitators and/or volunteers, who provide practical opportunities for lifelong learning skills development, wellbeing, and social activities.


LBP Inc’s central location, close to public transport, also makes it a convenient option for facility hire for the local community.
