"I'm a team leader for a Night Patrol team which is always a lot of fun. The people you meet and smiles you create is something you can't get through paid work no matter what you do."
Night Patrol is one of our most recognised services, and visits the streets of Canberra and surrounds 364 nights of the year, providing engagement, material aid and light refreshments to people in need. Night Patrol volunteers engage with people by offering friendship, support and compassion.
The vans operate seven nights a week and visit locations across Canberra and Queanbeyan, handing out drinks, sandwiches, fruit, clothing items, sleeping bags, blankets, and hygiene packs.
Night Patrol volunteers often act as a connection point for people in need, offering information and referrals based on individual needs. The vans are operated by volunteers, with the oversight of a coordinator.
• Minimum one shift a month commitment. Each shift goes for approximately 2-3 hours
