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’.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
