What is Night Patrol?
Night Patrol has been operating in the Canberra region since August 2001. Night Patrol provides mobile outreach offering refreshments and friendly faces to people on the streets every night of the year. The Night Patrol teams are made up of enthusiastic and compassionate volunteers from within the community who receive specialised training to help support those in need. Referrals to our community services are available through Night Patrol.

Who can access this service?
Whilst the service is available to anyone, its primary clients are the homeless, people at risk, both young and old, and those in need, who might not otherwise seek help from the St Vincent de Paul Society or other community or charitable groups.
