Impact update: In May 2018, 105 locals in need accessed our hot shower project at the Byron Community Cabins. 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. Although community showers won’t solve homelessness, it does fill a massive gap in available support for those without a home in our community. For more information follow this link:

Just a quick reminder...We are a collection point for the #DignityDrive this August. Buy extra sanitary items for women in need and drop them off at the Byron Community Centre between office hours (Mon - Fri 10am - 4pm). #sharethedignityHappy 1st day of our August #dignitydrive!!! 💕 It’s hard to imagine today as we enjoy this day with our family and friends surrounded by food, love and the basic of necessities. That today, yesterday, the day before there are thousands and thousands of women without a bed to sleep in and somewhere safe to call home. Whilst this struggle is real, so is the fact that these women are using wadded up toilet paper in their underwear to deal with their period. Is this ok? No way! This is why in August you can help make a real difference to women and girls doing it tough. HOW DO YOU HELP? Pick up a packet of pads or tampons and drop them off to one of our thousand plus collection points around Australia. 💕 Or you can donate a few dollars online to help us to Share the Dignity. 💕 The most powerful thing you can do is to share this post to let everybody know. I don’t believe that there is a woman in Australia that would not be empathetic to the fact that women have their period and no access to sanitary items. Where is your closest collection point?

If people used menstrual cups they wouldn't need to buy sanitary items (supporting big businesses; causing illness because of bleaching, pesticides on the cotton; radiation and chemicals; environmental waste and damage; and a continuous ongoing expense). I have not bought a sanitary product in over 7 years. If you really want to help people in need, why not consider supplying reusable products like menstrual cups.

The Byron Bay Markets continue to be a crucial income stream for the Community Centre and local charities.
At each Community Market, two local charities have the opportunity to raise money for their fundraiser. In 2018, local charities raised a whopping total of $14739.
The Byron Markets are part of the Byron Bay Community Association which is a registered charity and operates as a not-for-profit social enterprise. As such, funds raised from stallholder fees go towards a good cause and are used for projects and events that benefit our local community.

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."

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!
