We are in the industrial area of Baywater. If volunteering with us its important that you park on the street, this is because we are part of a strata managed complex with so many bays allocated to each unit. We don’t want to disrupt our neighbours’ businesses by using their bays.
If dropping of donations we have 5 minute parking bays available.
There is also one disabled parking bay available in the complex.
Yes, we provide food relief through our emergency hamper program.

We try to cater to all dietary requirements and can only give what we have available.
