The Matthew Talbot Hostel provides accommodation and specialised support to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. It is run by the St Vincent dePaul Society, and Waverley College has supported the Talbot Hostel for many years financially and through students assisting their kiosk and supporting their homeless services.

The service aims to provide immediate support and accommodation for people at the time of crisis as well as facilitate access to other essential services and more permanent housing. These services range from provision of nutritional meals, clothing, showers and basic medical to intensive case management, legal and housing support, specialised health care, advocacy and  providing a safe, welcoming environment for people who are sleeping rough and have experienced trauma.

Estee Lauder Fundraiser

Tevlin House is running an Estee Lauder Shopping Evening on Tuesday 12 September 2017 to raise funds for Matthew Talbot hostel and our other chosen charity, SurfAid. This will be a great opportunity to do some early Christmas gift shopping at hugely discounted prices.

Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased HERE.
