On Tuesday 3 March, Wesley Mission CEO the Rev Keith V Garner AM along with Lord Mayor of Newcastle and special guests gathered to officially reopen the completely refurbished building at 15 Denison Street, Newcastle West. The event also marked the expansion of a new approach to personalised assistance, making it even easier for locals in need to access support from Wesley Mission’s broad range of services.
“Our refurbished hub demonstrates Wesley Mission’s continued commitment to the region and to providing a network of support that extends beyond Newcastle to Lake Macquarie and the Hunter,” said Mr Garner.
“Wesley Mission has been serving the Newcastle community for more than 20 years. Many people know us for homeless services, but we also offer education, training and employment, counselling, mental health and wellbeing support, along with foster care amongst a wide range of other programs.”
Delivering tailored support for children, young people, adults and seniors, Wesley Mission Newcastle will act as a first point of contact to Wesley Mission’s more than 120 programs including referrals to local community providers to best meet the diverse needs of the region.
“Anyone who needs help can come in and speak to a person who will listen. We want to make sure that each person receives support and knows their next step. Many people might have complex needs but taking the first step is crucial, reinforced by Wesley Mission’s commitment to walk alongside every person, no matter how long the journey,” said Mr Garner.
