Choose Love over Hate. Stand with Wayside Chapel.


Right now, there are over 35,011 people experiencing homelessness in NSW.

These are the most vulnerable people in our community, and when times get tough, they rely on Wayside Chapel.

Our vision is ‘Love over Hate’, and for 60 years we have provided unconditional love, care and support to the most marginalised and vulnerable people who are isolated and sleeping rough on our streets.

Become a monthly donor to support our work and provide meals, personalised care and vital essentials to people experiencing mental health issues, isolation and homelessness.

Please stand with us. Become a Monthly Donor to help people in crisis.

"I love Wayside. To me, it's like home."
- Allan

Allan was 10 years old when he became a carer to his mother who was living with a terminal diagnosis. Over the years she was sick, Allan stayed up all night making her hot drinks, cooking meals and carrying her from her wheelchair to the bed.

Sadly, when his mother passed away, home wasn't safe anymore.

Allan first came to Wayside at 14 years old.

Through the most difficult times in his life, Allan always found comfort and refuge at Wayside Chapel – a safe haven he’d never known.

Being part of the community helped Allan build the confidence to connect with other people and start piecing his life back together.
