“I think there would be quite a few people that would be absolutely lost without Rough Edges”

Registered Charity


Since 1996 we have faithfully served the homeless and marginalised community in Darlinghurst, creating a space where different communities collide, share with and serve each other. St Johns Community Services Ltd is a non-for-profit organisation that seeks to improve the community of Darlinghurst and surrounding suburbs.

SJCS runs the Rough Edges cafe, the Urban Exposure education programme and the Community Assistance Partnership Programme (CAPP), which helps people move from emergency to sustainability. We offer legal advice in partnership with a solicitor who operates a pro bono practice here. In partnership with St John’s Church, Streetwise Church operates out of Rough Edges.

We partner with St johns Anglican church. To visit their website click here.
