At night, the red ‘emergency’ sign of the emergency department at St Vincent’s Hospital Fitzroy acts as a beacon for homeless or socially isolated who are feeling distressed or in need of comfort. To lift pressure on the emergency department, the Safe Haven Café launched at St Vincent’s Hospital Fitzroy in March 2018 for people seeking mental health support.

‘Walk in their footsteps’ was both the challenge and the invitation thrown down by Julian Burnside QC yesterday. 

Across Saturday and Sunday, St Brigid’s Mordialloc and St Louis de Montfort’s Aspendale held a photo exhibition at St Brigid’s, to raise awareness about the plight of refugees and asylum seekers. Combined with a large number of international award winning images, several of them Pulitzer prize winning shots, the schools’ own primary students contributed and displayed their own original art, expressing their view of the world’s present humanitarian crisis.
