Our annual Care & Connect Day is a supportive gathering for the Byron Shire’s homeless and rough sleeping community. Thanks to your kind donations, along with an extra special Homeless Breakfast service, we were able to provide professional haircuts, warm clothing, shoes, toiletries, sleeping bags, backpacks and much-needed essentials to some of our community’s most resilient residents. 🙏💞

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.

Great achievements and entertainment, many thanks. But please keep the Byron Community Markets jobs for the "fee collectors/takers". Not everyone needs to or can pay rental fees online. Just try to remember that most Marketeers are new "sole proprietors" starting up. They brake the cycle of unemployment. A much bigger picture than saving some coins.

Thank You StreetSmart Australia for supporting our Homeless Shower project with a grant of $1000. The project is provided by the Byron Community Centrein 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. For the community members who access the showers, being able to connect with community services, ensuring personal hygiene needs are being met, and sitting down for a cup of tea and a chat all have an immeasurable impact on day-to-day life. Your generous support is much appreciated. ♥♥♥ ... See MoreSee Less

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.

30th December, 8pm. Booking 6685 6807 or
