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 may 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. An exciting collaborative venture between DARA’s Van and Orange Sky Laundry, the mobile hospitality and laundry service will be available five nights a week throughout Newcastle and the Hunter.
