About the NCIE

The National Centre of Indigenous Excellence (NCIE) is a non-profi t social enterprise. Our focus is to change the opportunity profile for future generations of Indigenous young people in the areas of employment and training, sport, arts and culture and digital innovation. 

Since opening in 2010, we have had over 22,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people participate in programs, community forums and local events at our Centre in Redfern. We have created over $30 million in social value. Every dollar donated to or invested in the NCIE creates almost $5 worth of social value. The NCIE has reframed possibility and positively infl uenced the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

“When we were planning a trip to Sydney, we didnʼt even consider staying anywhere else but at the NCIE. The central location was great for our busy schedule of activities all around Sydney from La Pa to our boat cruise around Sydney harbour. You canʼt beat the facilities, the outdoor pit where we danced, the food that was laid on. Why would you stay anywhere else?”
