Our Mission / Objective

Today, under the banner of love over hate, The Wayside Chapel creates a community where there is no ‘us and them’ by breaking down the barriers of judgement and providing a safe place where people from all walks of life are welcome just to ‘be’.

The Wayside Chapel draws people out of social isolation and invites them into the healing place of community. People marginalised by homelessness, mental health issues and substance abuse can turn to Wayside for compassion, tolerance and support.

Our community services centre, youth space and outreach service, mental health program, twilight team, community cafe and our Aboriginal project are all designed to ensure the most disadvantaged members of our community have access to essential health, welfare, social and recreational services.

Each year, thousands of people visit Wayside for assistance in gaining equitable access to essential health, welfare and related services. In the last year alone, Wayside provided, amongst other services, 11,000 1:1 instances of support, referrals and information, 10,200 community meals, 5,800 changes of clothing, 14,100 hours of support to people with a long-term mental health issue, and 7,900 instances of activity-basedsupport. People purchased over 85,600 low cost items in the Café, 600 youth at risk accessed our service and 6,300 members of the community visited Wayside to learn more about our work or participate in an event.

Overall, 85,000 instances of support were provided to people seeking assistance or just stopping by for a chat and a place where they can find company and acceptance
