A local charity has just committed $12,000 to a temporary homeless shelter being developed by the Byron Community Centre. The charity, Global Ripple, operates out of an unassuming yet thriving little Op Shop in Byron’s Industrial Estate and puts 100% of its money into direct aid.

“There is an increasing amount of people living in desperate need right here in Byron Shire. We are strong believers in collaboration and really feel joining forces can make a huge difference to those who we are trying to help. I could not imagine what it would be like to have no roof over my head when those harsh storms and rains come through, I feel this is a much-needed facility for our local homeless” Global Ripple Founder Jacqui Boyett said.

When Jacqui met Shanti Des Fours, who is developing the Wet Weather Shelter Project, it was a perfect match. The project is providing temporary shelter, bedding, food and drinks and material aid during extreme wet weather.

“Despite the increased affluence in our region, or perhaps because of it, the number of people losing their homes and falling through the cracks in Byron Bay is growing” explains Shanti Des Fours. “Homelessness up by 14 percent since the last census.” She said.

Byron Bay has the second highest number of rough sleepers in NSW and yet there is currently no shelter (day or night) for people who are homeless.

“We are essentially experiencing a crisis. Our state government is not responding. So, with the help of organisations like Jacqui’s, we are doing it ourselves.” Explains Shanti Des Fours.

“At a basic level, this project is providing shelter for rough sleepers during periods of intense rain, thus providing for their physical needs of keeping dry, warm, and safe. More than that, this project enables dignity for these rough sleepers, caring for them when in need.” Explains Reverend Greer Dokmanovic, Minister of Byron’s Uniting Church - which will act as one of the temporary shelters.

Wonderful team.

Our Showers Project continues in 2018. Last January, 70 vulnerable community members accessed our hot showers.

The Byron Community Showers Project is based at the Byron Community Cabins. The project is provided by the Byron Community Centre in collaboration with the Byron Shire Council. The project provides a supervised and safe environment where people experiencing homelessness can access hot showers, laundry facilities, toiletries, clothes, weekly haircuts, service information, and general support from trained volunteers, and trained community service workers.

The showers project runs for two hours, two days a week - Monday and Wednesday from 10am to 12pm. People are able to sign up to have a shower at Liberation Larder (on a Monday) and the Homeless Breakfast (on a Wednesday) from 8am. Both programs are run at the Byron Community Centre. There is no “drop-in” component for the showers project.

Have you heard about our Coffee BOX?
The Coffee BOX is an innovative and inspiring not for profit social enterprise cafe providing workplace training to people in need.

How does it work?
We sell coffee to the public while training and supporting local people, particularly women, to transition out of disadvantage and homelessness into employment.

Our Impact:
25 people have participated in the training so far and expressed overwhelmingly positive feedback about their experience. These people have been able to acquire the skills necessary to re-enter the local workforce, as well as increase their self-confidence and their participation in our community.

We just launched a Street Gallery at our Coffee BOX! We're offering artists an opportunity to create and exhibit temporary public works as part of a rotation of short-term outdoor exhibitions.

“We want to provide an engaging new space for artists to experiment with new formats, showcase their work, engage in cultural exchange and access new audiences while creating a vibrant active public art space.” Explains Shanti Des Fours, Gallery Coordinator.

The first round of works are by Verity Nunan, her works offer a moving insight into the people who live in public space in Byron Bay.

“These are the storylines of all the members of the community that I have met through my research. I wanted to tell a bigger story about the Byron Shire and the incredible amount of people who live in the bush or depend on public space to survive…” Explains Verity.

The project was sponsored by Byron Bay Mitre 10. It will be on display at the Coffee BOX, located between the Post Office and the Community Centre. Open hours are 8:30-1:30pm - Monday to Saturday. To find out more contact Shanti at [email protected]

Give a little. Change a lot. We're celebrating National Volunteer Week here at the BCC and want to say a special THANK YOU to all our volunteers who are contributing their time and skills every day to our cause.

At the moment there are approximately 50-60 volunteers involved in activities at the centre each week. Overall, there are currently 480 volunteers registered in our database.

There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer for us, they range from shifts at our reception or the BOX Office to administrative tasks or communication work. Volunteers are also crucial to the Community Services team, the Byron Theatre and the Byron Markets. The centre simply could not operate without the support of volunteers!

If you are interested in volunteering for us, get in touch today!

Give a little. Change a lot. Michael's volunteer story.

Michael combines his love of writing and meeting new people to create 'Who’s In The House?' – an emailed publication with a photo which seeks to curb the “passing ships in the night” phenomena that can happen as volunteers come and go, doing their thing at the Byron Community Centre. Volunteers tell as little or as much about themselves as they feel comfortable sharing. “The range and depth of volunteer’s’ life experiences are extraordinary, and the passion, joy, skill and commitment they bring to a wide range of activities is simply inspiring. I regularly get feedback on how much their lives are enhanced through helping others and through connection with other caring people.” #NVW2018

Linda volunteers at the Byron Community Centre and coordinates a program called Money Matters. She tells this story:

“A few years ago I sat down with a client who was experiencing financial hardship and had come to the Community Centre for help. We spent some time together creating a manageable budget. She was open to making some changes and with encouragement she regained her confidence and trust in a better future. I was happy to come across her in a retail store where she is now working. She recognised me and said how working together making a budget for her had changed her life.” #NVW2018

Give a little. Change a lot. What a great slogan! What a great concept! So many empowering stories! And the benefits spread in all directions.
Volunteering time, energy and empathy for the betterment of those less well-off is nothing new – humankind has been supporting and loving and encouraging each other since the beginning of time – it makes us unique as a species. Battling the forces of darkness that would drag us down – poverty, hunger, homelessness, natural disaster and crazy political greed-fuelled ambition is countered by qualities of affirmative action, care and compassion. Here, in the Byron Shire, we are proud of our record of reaching out to those in need.
In the upcoming week we will share inspiring stories of our volunteers and the impact their contributions have every day. #NVW2018

Amazing News!

The Byron Community Centre has just received $5000 from Harcourts Foundation to help provide shelter to Byron’s homeless during extreme wet weather events. Harcourts is just one of a number of organisations and businesses who have thrown their support behind the project, including both the Anglican and Uniting Church who have offered their halls as shelters and St Vincent De Paul who have also committed $5000 to the project.

"The project is very straightforward. Instead of being forced to shelter in shop alcoves or other private property, the project will provide a safe and supportive solution for our local homeless. It will provide two separate shelters, one for women and one for men. There will be bedding, food and drinks, dry clothing and basic material aid during the events. Trained community services staff, security and volunteers will oversee the operation of each shelter." Explains Shanti Des Fours, Project Coordinator.

On 6 March 2018 under the cloak of parliamentary privilege Catherine Cusack (MP) made a series of incorrect statements about the Byron Community Centre – a not for profit community centre. Ms Cusack or her office did not contact the Community Centre to test any of her allegations. We are happy to compare our performance of service against Ms Cusack’s performance.

Below is our record of service compared to Ms Cusack’s - for just the last year.

Which electorate is she from? I’ve never heard of her before and why would she mention the bcc at all?

We are very happy to report that after more than one year in operation our coffee shop, The CoffeeBOX, is now thriving. The BOX is an innovative social enterprise and work experience program empowering local people to move out of disadvantage and into employment. The project builds confidence, employment skills, and community connection. All funds raised through sales on the BOX go straight back into our community services and work experience program.

Comfy bums for Byron Theatre - It's not too late to help us buy new seats!!

We have reached almost 50% of our comfy bums target, all thanks to your generous donations!! But there's still some way to go.

The 250 seats and carpet in Byron Theatre are in need of replacement. Arts NSW has provided nearly 50% of the cost. Now we need to raise just over $60,000 to make it happen – that’s only $250 for each seat!

The Byron Community Centre, which houses the Byron Theatre, is a social enterprise providing support to the arts and community services in the local community. From time-to- time we need to fundraise for various activities and infrastructure. This time it is to refurbish our beloved Byron Theatre. It’s the first facelift in 15 years!

Your contribution will make a permanent difference!

Your generous donations will be used to replace all 250 seats in the theatre and to lay new carpet. This will ensure theatre patrons will continue to enjoy a comfortable and absolutely fabulous experience in the Byron Theatre for years to come!

Click on the Donate button and help us reach our target. It’s not too late to help us buy new seats!

Glitta Supernova Invisible Lady at Gurlesque Sydney - The Glitta Supernova Experience “Lets get METAphysical” presented by Pretty Peepers Cabaret

Camp humor and sexual satire in a cosmic and lewd porno parody that’s strictly adults only.  Australian under-culture Royalty takes to the stage as the Fairy Godmother of Bent Burlesque, Glitta Supernova, & her fabulously demented one woman show collide into Byron for Tropical Fruits with a deliciously (im)moral autobiographical tale of a small town hippy girl lured into the hedonist post-
punk nirvana of late 80’s Sydney.
