Commitment to care

Wesley Mission has reached out to families and children since 1893 when we opened our first home for abandoned children, Waverley House, in Woolloomooloo.

Since then we have pioneered a broad range of services for children and families to help them in whatever circumstances they are in.

Wesley Mission is committed to:

  • offering struggling families support through counselling, mediation, financial and legal support and crisis accommodation
  • building strong and resilient families by teaching parenting skills, providing child development programs and out of school hours care and offering early intervention work
  • helping vulnerable children and young people thrive and reach their potential through foster care, mentoring and holiday camps
  • connecting with teenagers through a range of support services in the areas of substance abuse, employment, life issues and accommodation.

Wesley Mission is dedicated to strengthening families and putting an end to the perpetual cycle of disadvantage that children and families may experience.
