An organisation that aims to ‘disrupt the cycle of women’s homelessness’ has found a new home after being recently evicted from their premises.

Co-founder of the SHIFT Project, Anne Goslett, told The Echo they are excited to be currently in the process of securing a long lease on a property in the Byron Bay Arts & Industry Estate.  

Ms Goslett says, ‘To those members of our wonderful community who reached out to offer their support, ideas and encouragement – we thank you from the bottom of our hearts’.  

Julie Wells, another SHIFT Project co-founder, said, ‘We are preparing for the big shift – packing down the old and fitting out the new will take many hands to get the job done.

‘We need to raise funds, engage the experts and gather all hands on deck so we can continue our five star service with as little interruption as possible’. 

Help needed

‘If you can help with time, muscle or money, please email: [email protected] or go direct to our website to donate. Finding a new home for the Linen SHIFT means we will not have a long downtime before we can open our doors again, and we are so happy to say we will be able to transition without impacting our workforce’. 

Ms Goslett adds, ‘We have a bright new future, and this is owing to the ongoing and extraordinary care and reciprocity of the Northern Rivers community’.


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.
