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, food and clothing or, as a last resort, provide a blanket or a street swag. Missionbeat use your pre-loved yoga mats for all kinds of purposes to help them do their work.
The Missionbeat vans use the Mission Australia radio network to connect people with services – whether it’s calling a nurse to treat and dress an infected wound, 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. The service operates from 7am-10.30pm seven days a week.
