The Mullumbimby District Neighbourhood Centre is set to go mobile after receiving a $20,000 grant from local job provider ETC.
The centre will use the funds to purchase a mobile stall so it can engage with the broader Byron community.
Acting centre manager Leseera Kai said the stall, which will also provide reasonably priced, good-quality coffee and snacks, would be an invaluable tool for building relationships with the community.
‘There are parts of the Shire where there really isn’t a great deal of community engagement, and this is a great opportunity for us to reach those areas,’ Ms Kai said.
‘We’ll be able to connect with people and to put them in contact with services and support if they need, but also just build relationships with the community.
‘It’s also a great chance for volunteers and students to get some real, on-the-ground experience of community outreach work. We’re really excited about this and really grateful for the opportunity’.
