A safe and trusted place where people can come for help.

HopeStreet - Wellington is situated in a community that is experiencing multiple forms of disadvantage. Often referred to as the “Ice Capital of Australia”, our work in Wellington is at the very street level, where we aim to offer practical support and hope to the community.

Our central focus here is to meet one of the most basic human needs; the need for low-cost and nutritional food. Our work here is to provide food support and alleviate the food affordability crisis that leaves many individuals and families struggling to place a meal on the table and groceries in the cupboard.

Our team at Wellington is passionate about making a difference and bringing hope to the lives of many, being a safe and trusted place where people can come for help.
