Street Yarning is HOPE’s mobile support service providing people with a safe space to connect with staff, including counsellors and volunteers. Street Yarning Outreach services also provide practical supports such as food, clothing, blankets and toiletries; and engagement with other service agencies.
HOPE’s Outreach team have developed solid relationships with local schools and sporting organisations. In addition to regularly visiting schools to connect with young people, this support service takes students out for bush walks and activities.
