Our weekly impact in Rockhampton

Orange Sky celebrated the launch of their 40th location by introducing a laundry pod to the community of Rockhampton in February 2024.

Data from the 2021 Census has revealed that homelessness in Rockhampton has increased by 13.8% (ABS, 2021). The increase in homelessness resulted in heightened demand on support services in the region, being one of the key reasons we set our sights on Rockhampton, aiming to help support the growing number of locals experiencing hardship.

Usually delivering our services via iconic bright orange mobile vans, the Rockhampton community welcomed a different laundry asset type, an original invention by our innovation team – a ‘Laundry Pod’.

The Orange Sky laundry pod will be operated out of The Salvation Army,  a space that brings together community groups and service providers, offering a unique opportunity to work collaboratively and impact the Rockhampton community, enabling access to multiple resources and services in one place.
