Alan Clarke

Founder and Life Member
"I came to Australia from England in 1986. Life has been kind to me, and 14 years ago I decided that I wanted to put something back in. I started Street Mission in 1998, and have loved the opportunity to meet a wide range of people in the community, both the less fortunate and the fortunate. I believe that Street Mission has made a positive difference to our community".
