Our mission is creating community with no ‘us and them’. We do this by breaking down the barriers of judgement and providing a safe place where people from all walks of life are welcome.

Our vision is ‘love over hate’.

At Wayside, we live on the intersection between love and hate, between faith and no faith, between the haves and the have nots, the housed and the homeless, the sick and the well. We want to live on this intersection between love and hate in a way that helps love prevail. It is a vision that is always before us and always calling us to be more.

At Wayside, we see everyone as a person to be met, not a problem to be solved.

We are proud to have been providing unconditional love, care and support for people on and around the streets since 1964.

Our door is open 7 days a week for all of our neighbours regardless of their circumstances. Through opportunities to connect, we see that moments of transformation can and do happen, and that they move people towards health and healing.

The Wingspan Project

The Wingspan Project is a training and employment initiative providing opportunities for young people (17-25) to take control of their lives. Through the program, they are gradually empowered by one-on-one support focussing on both physical and mental wellbeing. Participants are therefore enabled to progress their lives through training and employment.
