Community Care Van

The Community Care Van has provided food, beverages and a safe place to talk. for people experiencing homelessness or who are at risk of experiencing homelessness, at Islington Park, every Saturday since 2004. The service runs between 4pm and 7pm and also provides an outreach opportunity for vulnerable people to access community services via information and referral.


Providing food and refreshments is an ideal way to engage with people who may identify that they require assistance in a variety of areas. 16 teams of volunteers from across the diocese operate the Community Care Van and up to 100 people use the service each Saturday.


Volunteers are welcome to assist with operations, please contact us on (02) 49791 142 for more information.
