It’s Ryan here, and I’m doing the thing that I HATE the most… asking for a handout. But, with the chance to do something mind-blowingly incredible, I’m not about to let pride get in my way.
So here goes….
For those of you who don’t know me or my story, the fact is it doesn’t really matter. Life has sucked, real hard at times, but when life throws you lemons, I say it’s time to pour yourself a drink and throw in some vodka and ice for good measure.
And this is exactly what Tribe is all about. Sh*t happens, but it doesn’t mean that you’ve got to go through it alone or without a smile on your face.
With this at our very core, we launched Tribe Social Belonging (Tribe) in 2017 after a particularly sh*tty time in my life. It’s at these moments when you realise what matters most, and for me, the connections and moments I shared with others got me through the darkest of times.
Enough about me, and more about why you’re about to put your hand in your back pocket or help us spread the word….
Who is Tribe?
Tribe Social Belonging is for everyone (as long as you’re not a wa*ker) looking to feel part of a community and make connections.
We do this by hosting many different events and activities where those who would otherwise feel lonely and isolated are provided with a safe and welcoming environment where they can reconnect. And have a yarn and a good time without judgement!
There is no agenda, just opportunity.
And our opportunity just came knocking….
A Clubhouse With A Purpose!
Drumroll, please… introducing the Tribe Clubhouse, located in Redcliffe, where we will be opening our doors from 1st July to provide a place where anyone and everyone can find a safe and accepting environment (with the added bonus of a reasonable price coffee or beer to go with it).
After 4+ years of events with 7,000+ Tribers having a blast, Tribe has grown so large that we require our own premise. And we’ve found the PERFECT place; we just need a bit of help getting it off the ground.
As much as we have appreciated our grassroots history and the support we’ve received from our local business community by hosting our events in local cafes, restaurants and venues, it’s time for us to now plant our roots in a venue that will accommodate our unique community and help us reach and connect more people than ever before.
How you can help?
Help us support others!
We’ve found the venue in Redcliffe, and now we just need your help to ensure it’s sustainable… and by that, we mean we need some help with fitting it out and getting some operational costs covered.
You can help by donating cash via this GoFundMe, which will go directly towards helping us cover:
- Clubhouse Fitout / Building Materials
- Operational Costs / Utilities
- Growth of Tribe support worker network

PS – We’re a charity!
Oh yeah, and the nitty gritty stuff… we’re a registered charity, so all donations are tax deductible.
