Wayside Chapel Recognition

(Community Recognition Statement, Legislative Assembly, NSW Parliament)

I acknowledge the fantastic work of the not-for-profit organisation The Wayside Chapel.

Established in 1964 with the strong motto "Making community with no us and them", the chapel provides practical and emotional support seven days a week for people in need of help living in the Kings Cross area. With more than 48,000 visits last year, it helps those in the community who experience crisis by providing practical help such as showering facilities, low-cost meals, clothing and support in finding accommodation. It also provides a welcoming and non-judgemental environment—people can simply have a coffee and a chat. The Wayside Chapel also delivers services such as the Wayside Youth program, which helps youths who may be at particular risk or who are in crisis, and the Aboriginal Project which brings the Indigenous community together in a way that is respectful and appropriate. I commend the great work of all workers, including Reverend Graham Long, and volunteers involved in this much-needed community organisation.
