Rosies devastated after Southport Court eviction

Rosies volunteers are up in arms after the State Government decided the charity could no longer use their Southport Courthouse room to provide drinks and snacks to locals in court.

The charity, who run a street outreach program for the homeless, have been using the room to provide support to families facing legal battles for more than 15 years but were last week told they would have to move out.

It’s believed the room will now be used for domestic violence cases.


Rosies has not been given a specific move out date, but Rosies General Manager Andrew O’Brien said it could be a matter of weeks.

As yet no replacement room has been offered to the charity at the courthouse, however Attorney General Yvette D’Ath has said she is looking for a solution.
