Home – About Us


The Shopfront aims:

  • To provide and offer mutual help, assistance and act as a referral to visitors who may be experiencing difficulties dealing with problems in their life i.e. accommodation, budgeting, depression, hunger, loneliness, addictions, violence;
  • To offer mutual help programs for the relief of sickness, distress and suffering within the general community;
  • To provide warm, caring, fellowship and hospitality to the visitors; and
  • To provide an opportunity for the visitors to socialise and make friends.
  • To network with other agencies to enable us to effectively assist people.


  • We provide some food and drink for those who call in.
  • Through St Vincent de Paul, we can occasionally assist with clothing, bedding, furniture, non-electrical household goods and some financial assistance with bill paying, for those in hardship.
  • We may help with emergency accommodation, food for families, transport vouchers or phone cards.
  • The Mobile GP doctor attends here on a Tuesday afternoon.
  • We refer those with health and homeless issues on to appropriate Government and Private agencies.
  • Among the many incidental things we do are, assisting people with long term housing and advocacy by referring them to other organisations.
  • We have shower and clothes washing facilities for those who are homeless.
