Established in 1979, KNC  is the one  largest independent, not-for-profit, community-led organisation which offers comprehensive cost effective access to services. Our focus is to support people, their families and carers to navigate the health and social care systems, access the services they require, when they require them, to maximise opportunities and to live independently. The KNC team includes a voluntary Board of experienced and dedicated Directors,  Advisory Community Members including people with lived experience and a qualified team of staff and dedicated volunteers.  KNC  has been providing information support and services to community members  since 1979.


KNC is an inclusive organisation to all, regardless of gender, race, religion or sexual orientation. KNC links people to services and exists to assist individuals to remove the effect of physical, attitudinal, communication and social barriers in the community and to assist them to maximize opportunities that enrich their lives.

KNC is  engaged in providing core services which include:

  • Direct assistance such as social support, transport, with opportunities for social group inclusion;

  • Providing information on, and access to, a diverse range of in-home and community based services for people who have identified care and support needs;

  • Encouragement and enables people to identify opportunities and achieve their personal goals;

  • Demonstrating leadership in the development, planning and evaluation of services through continuous quality improvement, thought leadership, innovation and research; and

  • Navigation through the complexity of the health and social systems.

KNC is managed by a voluntary Board of Directors elected from members of the organisation, and assisted by staff.



KNC volunteers are people from all walks of life, 52  nationalities and beliefs. They are the core of the Centre and it could not operate without them. Volunteers go through screening and training prior to working with the centre. See the Volunteer page for more details on how to become a volunteer.


KNC is a non-profit community-based organisation. We are managed by a volunteer community based Board of Directors that is elected by KNC members each year at the Annual General Meeting. Any interested community member can apply to become a member of KNC and receive KNC Newsletters. Contact the secretary for details.
