Missionbeat - Homeless Outreach Service (NSW)
Mission Australia’s homeless outreach service, Missionbeat, patrols inner Sydney streets seeking out those in distress and offering them support.
The iconic vans transport homeless men, women, children, families and intoxicated or drug affected men and women to services to meet their immediate needs, including safe accommodation, medical care or food and clothing.
In June 2009 Mission Australia launched a new arm of the service, the Missionbeat Bicycles to improve the speed and flexibility of the service.
Each day outreach workers on bicycles criss-cross the city talking to people sleeping rough in alleyways and alcoves where the vans can’t access.
These dedicated and trusted staff use Mission Australia’s radio network to connect people with services – whether it’s calling a nurse to treat and dress an infected wound, arranging for a van to transport them to a shelter or contacting emergency services for crisis support.
Missionbeat responds to public calls for help as well as calls from police, ambulance, community services and government departments.
