Parramatta Community Care Van
Following the success of our Sydney Community Care Van another van has started operation in Parramatta on a Monday evening between 6pm – 7.30pm. In addition to this a second weekly service will commence operation in the coming months.
Volunteers distribute Coats for the Homeless in winter, sun protection in summer and water and hygiene packs year round to those on the streets. We are also seeking medical professionals willing to offer their services to provide healthcare and advice to the homeless.
Homeless individuals have more health problems and more severe outcomes from health issues than the general population. This mobile initiative provides much needed support and protection to some of the most vulnerable and marginalised members of the community.
The Community Care Van is funded entirely by donations and staffed by volunteers. There are lots of ways you can support this initiative:
