Due to the ongoing support of the ACT Government’s Justice and Community Safety Directorate, St John Ambulance ACT can enhance the services offered by our CBR NightCrew and extend their operating hours to include public holidays until 30 June 2021.
CBR NightCrew is a collaborative initiative between local government and industry to help people have a safer night out in Canberra. Managed and run by St John Ambulance ACT and staffed by employees and trained volunteers, the program uses a harm minimisation approach to help people to have a safer night out. The program operates a safe space near Platform 5 of the City Bus Station on Mort Street.
CBR NightCrew will now operate 10pm and 2:30am on Thursdays and 10pm and 4am on Friday and Saturday nights, with the inclusion of the following Sundays from 10pm to 2.30am to account for the potential increased demand during long weekends:
• Sunday, 7 March 2021 (Canberra Day)
• Sunday, 4 April 2021 (Easter Sunday)
• Sunday, 25 April 2021 (ANZAC Day)
• Sunday, 30 May 2021 (Reconciliation Day)
• Sunday, 13 June 2021 (Queen’s Birthday)
