“Sanctuary Point Youth And Community Centre” Celebrating 25 years of Service to the Community
In June 2016, the Sanctuary Point Youth and Community Centre (SPYCC) reached a special milestone – 25 years of people, learning, and achievements that continue to bring about real change for our local community.
BBCR operates with a volunteer Board, it is a not for profit organisation that has worked in partnership with Shoalhaven City Council to design, raise funds and construct the Centre. Since that time BBCR has continued to work with Council in the management and maintenance of this vibrant venue, which is a hive of activity.
Since 1991, BBCR has worked with all levels of Government to gain funding for the development of programs that support disadvantaged groups. A key role of the Centre has been the development of partnerships, which has supported a very diverse range of professionals to attend the Centre and provide free assistance to residents living in the Bay & Basin area.
Each year over 1200 individuals have accessed the centre for information, and hundreds of individuals have attended the 45 different services (1,370 occasions of service annually), which are coordinated through the Centre. Local residents have gained valuable benefits from the diverse range of community, health and recreational activities.
The Centre offers support, resources, information, programs and opportunities for children, youth, families and communities with the aim to educate, empower and enhance the health, safety and wellbeing of individuals.
Today, 25 years later the Centre is still a busy vibrant community hub, a place where people can develop new friendships, have fun, learn new skills, get involved and become engaged in their community.
BBCR has been at the forefront in the provision of community and home support programs offered out of the Centre and in other locations across the Shoalhaven and Illawarra region.
If you require information or may need to be referred to another service provider, our friendly Centre staff may be able to assist you through our Shoalhaven resource directory. BBCR works with local primary and high schools, disability groups, allied health, service providers and community groups.
SPYCC also encourages community engagement through events, workshops, group activities, health awareness sessions and outreach services, which are provided out of the Centre.
The BBCR Board, CEO, staff and volunteers are very proud to be celebrating this exciting occasion. BBCR will be holding events over the coming months to celebrate this exciting occasion.
We would like to acknowledge all the Volunteers and Employees who have been involved in BBCR over the past 25 years. Your contribution and dedication in helping others has led to the success of the organisation and made a difference in the lives of so many local residents.
