Parramatta Mission provides meals, accommodation and mental health services across Greater Western Sydney, with almost 500 staff and many volunteers delivering more than 70 services. We provide assistance to the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in our communities to assist them in transforming their lives. These include people who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, facing crisis and people living with mental illness.
Parramatta Mission is a part of the Uniting Church in Australia. The Uniting Church has three hallmarks: worship, witness and service. It is the ‘service’ aspect which is so evident in the work of Parramatta Mission’s mental health services and community services. The Mission is now one of the largest providers of community services to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness Western Sydney.
The Mission’s mental health division is now one of the most significant providers of community mental health services in NSW and is responsible for employing the majority of the Mission’s staff.
While headquartered and with some services in Parramatta’s CBD, the Mission’s 70 plus programs are delivered from no less than 80 sites extending across Western Sydney, to the Central Coast, Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, the Blue Mountains, Liverpool, Hunter and New England.
