A big thank you to everyone who came and helped us celebrate the official opening of our new Wellness Garden, the Sanctuary Community Matters Fair, and the launch of our new brand as we celebrate our growth from BBCR to BCR Communities!
While we may have changed our name and logo, we want our community to know that we are still exactly the same not-for-profit organisation with the same values, strong commitment to serving our communities and amazing team of staff and volunteers, including our management and Board.
So why are we changing our name? Bay & Basin Community Resources started 30 years ago when a group of concerned locals got together to try and find a solution for the very real lack of community resources in the Bay and Basin region. In these early stages, the name was a perfect fit – everyone involved lived in the Bay and Basin and the main concern was sourcing resources for this one community.
Today, while the Bay & Basin is still our heart and home, we support people in many communities from Helensburgh in the north of Wollongong right down to Ulladulla. We also provide so much more than just resources, including practical support, social connection, workshops, community projects, activities, and volunteering opportunities.
Quite simply, over the last 30 years we have outgrown the original name. We want our name to be inclusive of every person we support and reflect the diverse range of services we provide.
