2017 Christmas Party
Once again, thanks to the City of Bayswater, we shall be having the Shopfront Christmas Party at The Rise. We have been unsuccessful in being able to obtain a date in December so this year we will be celebrating on Saturday November 25th.
A new opportunity
For many years the Shopfront has closed prior to Christmas and re-opened in late January. Over the past eighteen months the Shopfront Committee of Management have been discussing opening hours and services. After deliberating over various options it has been decided that we will open in January 2018 with reduced hours and services
Tuesday 16th Wednesday 17th Thursday 20th
Tuesday 23rd Wednesday 24th Thursdays 25th
Usual full operations will commence Monday January 29th
Further information about January 2018 will be made available later in the year.

Volunteer Training Day – Coffee Cup Listening
A small group met on a cold and wintry Saturday morning in late JULY. We started the morning with a short reflection and followed this with a 45 minute workshop on reflective listening.
Following morning tea there was an opportunity to hear concerns and share information and plans for the coming few months here at the Shopfront.
Up dated web site
Thanks to a new volunteer – Tricia, a teacher at Newman College – we have an updated and refreshed website. http://shopfrontwa.org.au Our on-going hope is that we will be regularly updating information. Stay tuned!
At present when all things are flowing smoothly we seem to have all days and evening covered. From time to time we are still “under the pump” if for whatever reason a person is unable to make it. Ideally we have at least five volunteers + a person in charge at all times. When we have greater numbers it is the perfect opportunity to meet and chat informally with our visitors. If you cannot make it to your rostered day/evening it would be helpful if you were able to arrange for a substitute.
Extra Hands make light Work
Earlier in the year we had three 1st Year Seminarians (Nathan, Adam & Matthew) with us on a Friday for three months. Luckily for us a TAFE student (Anne) completed her 100 hours of practicum over three weeks. For the past seven weeks two UWA Masters in Social Work students (Ammar & Martin) have been with us full time as they complete their 13 week placement.
