The East Coast Bays Community Project Incorporated is a community-based-not-for-profit organisation which has charitable status. The organisation began in 1989 as a group of people in East Coast Bays who wanted to see a Community House established in their community. In 1991, a community worker was employed to assist with this initiative and the society was incorporated in 1992.
The Bays Community Centre was opened in May 1992 and for six years the Project also ran a Youth Centre.
Today the Project operates from the Bays Community Centre and provides a wide range of community events and activities as well as managing both the Centre and St Annes hall for community use.
