Sydney’s Wesley Mission has completed an upgrade to its facilities that provide homeless people with somewhere safe to stay.

The Wesley Edward Eagar Centre is located in inner-city Surrey Hills.

It has been offering crisis accommodation to vulnerable people for more than 40 years.

The recent upgrade restored the heritage-listed façade and sandstone chapel.

It also added larger rooms with ensuite bathrooms, more personal storage and natural light.

Each accommodation floor has a communal kitchenette, laundry and living spaces.

Wesley Mission CEO and Superintendent Minister, the Reverend Stu Cameron, says the centre sets a new standard for crisis accommodation in Sydney.

It will help shelter an estimated 300 people sleeping rough on the inner-city streets every night.
