The Batbus provides accessible transport for 12-25 year olds of Byron Shire. If you need to go out with your friends and transport is a problem, the Bat Bus could help. Some of the venues the Batbus goes to are movies, sporting events, theme parks, restaurants and exhibitions. Fares are cheap and affordable and the Batbus is a drug and alcohol free service.
Uncle is a mentoring program existing for boys (particularly those with absent fathers) who would benefit from a more supportive environment of positive male role models.
Uncle recruits, screens, trains and supports adult male mentors to spend time with local boys, and organizes and facilitates activities and workshops where men and boys interact, learn, play and work together.
Uncle has been operating solely in Byron Bay and surrounds for ten years.
