Indulge in Compassion

Share Friendship, Change Lives

Your presence can make a real difference in the lives of our friends in need.


Since 1987, Rosies – Friends on the Street has offered community, connection and friendship through street outreach to people experiencing homelessness, disadvantage and social isolation.  

Last year we recorded more than 84,000 interactions – providing hot drinks, noodles & snacks, gift cards, meals, food parcels, blankets, coats, hygiene products, connection to other services and most importantly friendship, acceptance and belonging.  
In order to continue to support our friends in need and raise funds for our outreach activities, we are holding the first ever Rosies Long Lunch on Friday 15 March, 2024.
