Monday, 7th January 2019

Thank you for your support and friendship in 2018. We look forward to seeing you early in 2019.

DARA’s Van provides hospitality and friendship to the marginalised in our community – the homeless, socially isolated, financially stressed and all who are vulnerable.

By offering food and refreshments, DARA’s Van is a key outreach service which engages directly with people who require support and assistance, as well as access to information and other services.

Operated by dedicated teams of volunteers, DARA’s Van supports over 60 people each Saturday across a number of events throughout the region. As principal local partner of Orange Sky Laundry in the Newcastle region, DARA’s Van also offers access to mobile hospitality and support as well as laundry facilities.

The van is at the Lutheran Church grounds on Mondays, 6 - 8.30pm.
