Open 8.30am – 10.45am Monday to Saturday


Our history, mission and purpose

Carecent is a breakfast centre for all homeless, unemployed or otherwise socially excluded members of our community.

We provide food, clothing and fellowship in a friendly and non-judgemental environment. Our volunteer staff are always ready to listen and offer support and advice where possible. Where appropriate, we work with other agencies in order to move people forward to an improved lifestyle.

Carecent is open to people aged 18+ six mornings a week - Monday to Saturday from 8.30am to 10.45am.

The staff are fantastic and will talk to you about problems. They make you feel safe. They’ve got me going to the gym, they take us on trips and they can refer you to other agencies who will help you.


How to find us

Home again!


Following our successful renovation project, we are now back home at Central Methodist Church.

We have improved our dining space and our kitchen, and most importantly we have the toilet and shower facilities that our customers so desperately needed.

We've been back for a couple of months now, and customers and volunteers alike are delighted with our new and improved facilities.
