The Network of Inner East Community Houses (NIECH) is a network for the 28 Neighbourhood Houses and Learning Centres in the inner eastern metropolitan region of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

NIECH aims to strengthen our communities by building networks between Neighbourhood Houses and Learning Centres, communities, business, and government. NIECH provides management and operational support, as well as resources, to member Houses and Centres. This includes personalised support to Committees of Management, staff and volunteers. NIECH also facilitates members to participate in broader community development strategies.

NIECH is an incorporated association governed by a Committee of Management elected from the member Neighbourhood Houses & Learning Centres of the Network. NIECH is funded for just less than 24 hours per week by the Department of Planning & Community Development (State Government Victoria ) through the Neighbourhood House Coordination Program. The committee employs a Networker with these funds. The Networker works 3 days a week – Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
