The Wayside Chapel

Service Description

Wayside Chapel has been providing unconditional love, care and support for people on and around the streets of Sydney since 1964. Each year, thousands of people visit Wayside's two centres in Kings Cross and Bondi Beach to access essential health, welfare, social and recreational services. Wayside Chapel is well known for its Community Service Centres, dedicated Aboriginal Space, Wellness Program and The Wingspan Project – a youth employment pathway. Wayside’s social enterprises include the op shops, and the Heart Cafe in Bondi Beach. More recently, Wayside has expanded its care beyond its buildings with new outreach teams delivering support to people on the streets, as well as to people who are house-bound, but still in of need of connection.
