Meet Joshua Malcolm - Westfield Local Heroes 2021

Selfless supporter of homeless people

After Dark Saints
Motivated. Selfless. Inspiring

Josh Malcolm started helping homeless people on a small scale five years ago.

Now his efforts have turned After Dark Saints into a fully-fledged charity that provides cooked meals, bedding, warm clothes, sanitary products and other essentials to homeless people on a daily basis.

Josh and his fellow volunteers go out every night in their private vehicles.

They not only provide material support but also share a human connection.

Josh has experienced homelessness himself and says a simple conversation with someone can make a huge difference to their day.

Josh also advocates for homeless people and has managed to find housing for 21 people. A few years ago, Josh represented the homeless community at meetings with the local council after several people were fined.

Now the council and After Dark Saints work well together.

“I enjoy doing what I am doing as I know I am making a difference in someone's life, whether it be with a meal, making someone smile or helping them into a house,” says Josh.

He is delighted to be nominated as a Westfield Local Hero. “We don’t look for fame or anything, but it is absolutely amazing that people value the work we do.”

Westfield Local Heroes are nominated and voted for by their communities, with the three top finalists per Westfield centre each awarded a $10,000 grant for their affiliated organisation. After Dark Saints will buy a delivery vehicle and tents and sleeping bags for distribution.
