Established in 1975 as the Woy Woy Community Recreational Centre, the organisation was founded to provide a hub for community programs and activities under the NSW Government’s “red scheme” infrastructure program.

In 1990, the Centre’s name was changed to Peninsula Community Centre Inc., with the current Community Centre building opening in 2002.

In 2012, the organisation changed its name to Coast Community Connections to better reflect the scope and range of services offered which now incorporates aged and disability services, youth and children’s services, as well as gambling counselling and support and community centre programs and activities.

Although originally focused on delivering services to the Peninsula region, Coast Community Connections has grown substantially and now delivers more than $8 million of services into the Peninsula community, the Gosford local government area and into the wider Central Coast.
