For over 37,715 people experiencing homelessness in NSW, Christmas is such a lonely and difficult time. On Christmas Day, 1,000 men, women and children attend our free community lunch. This is a special time when those experiencing homelessness and social isolation can enjoy a free meal (with all the trimmings!) on Christmas Day, surrounded by a loving community.
Wayside Chapel is one of a handful of organisations open every single day, offering support for those experiencing homelessness and social isolation over the Christmas and New Year period. We are asking for your support to keep the kitchens cooking and our programs running over the Christmas and holiday season.
We need to raise $400,000 before Christmas to make sure anyone in crisis or experiencing homelessness is fed and supported during what can be a lonely and difficult time of year. Funds raised will go towards our Christmas Day Street Party and towards the cost of opening our programs and services throughout January so that no-one is left out.

Did you know in an average week, a person sleeping rough walks a distance of 28km looking for a place to sleep? Tonight as you head home, over 116,000 people won’t have a place to call home. Some will be wandering through the city, looking for a place to rest their head for the night, desperate for a safe space or shelter. A park bench is sometimes the only option.
Donate to Long Walk Home and help Wayside Chapel continue to support people experiencing homelessness. Or you can register here.

If you want to continue your support of Wayside even after you’ve gone, you can leave a bequest to Wayside Chapel.

Your contribution will mean that marginalised members of our community have access to essential health, welfare, social and recreational services, as well as a place where they’re welcome just to ‘be’.
To leave a bequest, follow these steps:

Workplace Giving is a program that enables you to donate small amounts to Wayside Chapel on a regular basis, through your employer’s payroll department. Each pay period you can nominate to donate a small amount to Wayside Chapel. Your employer will collect this and pass the donation on to Wayside. It makes a huge difference to what we do.
How do I get involved?
There are some simple steps to get involved in workplace giving:
1. Ask your employer if they have a workplace giving program
2. Register for workplace giving at your organisation
3. Nominate The Wayside Chapel as your preferred charity
4. Select the amount per pay period you would like to contribute
5. Stay in touch with us!
Many companies with a workplace giving program will also provide matched donations up to a maximum amount. This means that for every dollar you donate to Wayside Chapel your employer will also donate a dollar – doubling your contribution to what we do. We encourage you to check your employer’s policy on matched giving.
Donations through Workplace Giving are tax deductable and generally the deduction is made at the time of giving, as donations reduce your gross taxable income. Check out the Australian Taxation Office (www.ato.gov.au) for more information on the tax implications of contributing through Workplace Giving.
