Erina, 7 November 2023 – As the holiday season approaches, Health on the Streets is excited to announce the launch of their Health on the Streets Christmas Appeal. This heartfelt initiative is aimed at bringing joy and comfort to individuals in our community who are facing challenging circumstances during the holiday season.
The Health on the Streets Christmas Appeal is more than just a campaign; it’s an opportunity for all of us to come together, make a real impact, and share the true spirit of giving with those who need it the most.
We invite you to join us in making a difference by getting involved. Every give donated, regardless of its size, will contribute to making this Christmas brighter for those in need.
Gifts can be dropped off at the Coast & Country Primary Care Erina office, from today and continuing until Friday, December 8th. Our dedicated team of nurses and outreach workers from Health on the Streets will deliver the donated gifts directly to homeless and vulnerable individuals, between December 11th and December 17th.

About Health on the Streets: Health on the Streets takes healthcare to vulnerable people on the Central Coast. These individuals oen face a range of barriers to accessing basic healthcare services, such as going to a GP. Our team are commited to ensuring all people have a right to basic healthcare, safety and dignity and we provide a range of support and services to those doing it tough. Health on the Streets is delivered from a medical clinic van that regularly visits community hubs or drives around the community seeking people in need. The van is staffed by healthcare professionals and outreach workers who offer immediate support to vulnerable people on the Central Coast. We also link with other providers of housing and community services to bring as much support as possible to people accessing Health on the Streets.
