In what can be the loneliest time of the year, help vulnerable people know they’re not forgotten and not alone.

People experiencing homelessness and in crisis need a place to turn to during the holiday season, and ongoing support through these hard times. That’s why our Van and Foot Outreach teams are so important to help keep the Wayside spirit alive during Christmas and beyond.

Day and night, we’re heading out on foot and in our outreach van to meet with people and provide vital essentials – a meal, healthcare, housing support and a chance to chat with someone. Each care pack that we deliver is tailored to the needs of the person or family that we are supporting, and include essential items such as meals, clothing, bedding, non-perishable food items and toiletries.

Wayside Chapel is about creating moments of connection wherever we are – whether it’s in our building or through outreach on the streets and people’s homes.

Your donation this Christmas will bring warmth, connection and essentials directly to our most vulnerable community members wherever they are.

We want to make sure we reach everybody this Christmas. Please donate today.

“Wayside Chapel was my safe place. I really miss it.” – Kylie

Throughout COVID-19, our van outreach team have been regularly delivering groceries to Kylie*, one of our visitors in Redfern. Kylie looks after her son, who lives with her and has a mental disability. There is a complex family history, which means that Kylie and her son are isolated and don’t have a large support network.

Our outreach teams travels around Sydney, day and night, meeting people to provide support where needed, while also providing that crucial human connection that is so needed throughout these isolating times.

Your donation brings warmth, connection and essentials right to our vulnerable community members wherever they are. We want to make sure we reach everybody this Christmas.

Please donate today.
