Community Commitment

Home > Community Commitment

Call us old fashioned, but we firmly believe that lawyers and other professionals must play a leadership role in the community. Over the last three decades members of our team have worked hard to help this community becomes stronger and more vibrant. With the formation of Bryant McKinnon Lawyers, our commitment to this region only becomes stronger.

Sponsorship of the Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery

Development of the Arts is critical not only to the social fabric of community, but also to our economy, the education of our children and the well being of our citizens. Heather McKinnon, herself an artist, has long been an advocate of the Arts in Coffs Harbour.

Bryant McKinnon Lawyers has sponsored the development of the Still Ed Kit, an online resource available to visual arts student around Australia. This investment not only helps provides educational benefit to a large cohort of arts students, it also reinforces Coffs Harbour’s reputation as the centre for Still Life artworks.

We also provide sponsorship support for the Friends of the Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery, enabling them to bring major arts personalities to the Coffs Coast for their annual gala events.  As covered in the Coffs Coast Advocate here.

Sponsorship of the Young Actors Studio

There is nothing more important to a community than its young people! Coffs Harbour’s Young Actors Studio uses the performing arts to develop our children’s life skills, from interpersonal skills to communication skills.

Bryant McKinnon Lawyers supports the Young Actors Studio with scholarships and sponsorship to enable students to expand their horizons.

In 2018 we sponsored a group of young actors to travel to Sydney for a week of workshops at school like NIDA, AIM and the Actors Centre.

Schools Programs

The team at Bryant McKinnon has long provided coaching for schools undertaking mock trials and mediation programs run by the Law Society of NSW and Bond University. We love getting involved with students! Of course it’s rewarding to be able to help students learn and grow. But we also discover that we too learn from the fresh perspectives student bring and are re-energised by their drive and vitality.


Hockey Sponsorships

Sport is also an important part of the Coffs Harbour community, and another way that our youth expand their life skills. Bryant McKinnon Lawyers provide financial support to both the Orara Valley Hockey Team and Hockey Coffs Coast.
