Last year was a busy year for the wonderful team of our Byron Shire Volunteering Hub. In 2019, the team processed 242 applications. Well done! 

The Volunteer Hub offers a range of external volunteer opportunities that operate throughout the Byron Bay Shire. This new platform allows volunteers to access a wide range of opportunities suited to their interests and skills.

There is no way I would ever volunteer here again. I volunteered a few years ago when I was recovering from addiction and mental illness. I was really timid and quiet because I had been socially isolated for some time. The paid staff were really awful to me. They were rude and looked down their noses at me. I left with my self esteem being even lower than when I started. You people do not care about the disadvantaged in your community. You don't want to empower people, you want to keep us down so that we are forced to rely on you. You are elitist and you can't even see it. Disgraceful.

In 2019, we provided 30 hot showers on average per week to locals in need. ⁠Our Homeless Showers project was active throughout the COVID-19 lockdown and supported vulnerable locals. The demand for this essential program continues to grow and we welcome donations to buy necessary supplies like shower gels, razors or sanitary products.

The Byron Markets showcase the grass-roots of the Northern Rivers creative heart to all who visit here. Amidst
the dynamic and lively atmosphere at each market, we find new ideas, new products, and alternative ways of
being. As part of this, Byron Markets is committed to supporting local residents in the establishment of their business enterprises and gives preference to local stallholders who make, bake, sew or grow what they sell. in 2019, the @byron_markets supported over 700 local businesses from across the Northern Rivers region.

The Byron Markets team looks forward to re-commencing the markets (under COVID-19 guidelines) in August and to welcoming stallholders and visitors back to our beloved markets.

Byron Community Pantry - We want to extend a HUGE thank you to everyone who donated to the Byron Community Pantry! Thanks to your generosity, we are able to deliver food boxes to Byron Shire locals in need who are unable to financially and physically shop. 

We want to use this opportunity to share an update with you. In the last months, meals given out by the Byron Community Centre have doubled. Currently, we deliver 500 meals weekly through the Byron Community Pantry, and our friends at Liberation Larder Inc are giving out 400 weekly meals at the Centre.

The majority of people asking for help are international students who are unable to travel home and workers who are unable to access any government support. Most people now ask for vegetarian meals, but in the past, the request for meat meals was at 50%. 

We see that the Byron Community Pantry project will need to extend well beyond COVID-19 closedowns as we expect the impact in our community to last years. And we need your help to help the community! 

If you can, please support the Byron community Panty with a financial donation. With your help, we will be able to purchase necessary items like fruit & veg; staples like muesli/tinned goods/pasta, etc. and personal care items. To donate today, visit https://byroncentre.com.au/donations/bcc/ 
Thank you very much for your support! 

All donations are tax-deductible, 20% of every donation is used for admin costs.

Byron Community Pantry donation appeal - Dear friends and supporters, 
We recently shared an update with you about the essential service that is our Byron Community Pantry. In its first week of operation, the Community Pantry handed out 300 meals alone with the amazing hands-on support from @Liberation Larder Inc Due to the current health crisis, many Byron Shire locals have lost their jobs and are now unable to support themselves or their families. As a result, we expect the number of people in need of help to explode as we already see people who have never accessed our services asking for help. 
Despite having received generous financial contributions for the Byron Community Pantry, these donations will only stretch so far to help meet the exponential demand we are experiencing right now. Furthermore, we expect the need for this vital community service to continue for the next 6 to 9 months. We are concerned that we will run out of goods & funding and won’t be able to help the most vulnerable community member when they need our support most. That’s why we are asking for financial contributions from our community to help us help locals need.
To give you an idea, a regular donation of only $30 per month provides a struggling family with one meal per day. If you are in a position to support the Byron Community Pantry with a financial donation, please click https://byroncentre.com.au/donations/bcc/
Thank you very much for your support. We appreciate it!

Wet Weather Shelter 2019 - We would like to share the following update with you. 

On 28th March 2019, we successfully ran the Wet Weather Shelter project for the first time as we were expecting 25ml of rain according to the forecast and considering the dreary rainy day we experienced the day before. 

11 men registered with 4 attending 
8 women registered with 5 attending

A king-single camp bed, bedding, a hot meal at night and a continental breakfast was provided. The night progressed peacefully with 9 people experiencing a safe and comfortable sleep in the shelter.

We are calling this event a "Dry Run" because, contrary to the forecast, it actually didn't rain that night. We have learnt a lot from this "Dry Run"; the concept, operation, procedures and policies work!

The next time we open the Extreme Wet Weather Shelter will definitely be during an Extreme Weather Event as the project was intended and funded; it won't be opened just in rainy weather.

However, the number of registrations and attendees at the shelter when it was not actually raining, highlights the need for the provision of shelter for rough sleepers in our area.

Seniors' Festival and Expo - "Who said reaching the age of retirement had to be boring? The 2019 seniors’ expo certainly challenged that assumption! The seniors’ expo shone a light on our golden years and has potentially redefined the age of senior-ism (totally not a word but sounds like it certainly should be) as our days of glory and something for the younger generations to LOOK FORWARD TO. In one word, the 2019 seniors expo was sen(ior)-sational."
