The Catholic Worker Farm provides¬†accommodation, food, English lessons, counselling and other services for destitute (without access to public funds) female asylum seekers (who we call our ‘sisters’) and their children, at no charge. All of the women are street homeless, and are referred to the CW Farm by refugee services/agencies. The CW Farm /Mary House meets the physical needs in relation to shelter, food and clothing, but just as importantly, enables the guests to live in a supportive and loving environment.

We endeavour to live in community and have up to 6 volunteers living between the 2 houses.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer and want to know more about what life is like as a live in volunteer have a look at our live-in volunteer page.
