The Melville Residents’ Association, JMPD, DPU (Displaced Persons Unit ) and Ward Councillor (Amanda Forsythe) are working on a solution to address the significant number of vagrants in Melville. We are looking for concerned residents who are keen to assist and ideally (but not necessarily) have skills (psychologists, doctors, nurses, lawyers, social workers etc.) to assist us with this task.

The Displaced Persons Unit are planning a workshop in Melville to guide us in what is possible and to train the residents on how they can support a DPU / JPMD driven initiative to make a difference for these people and the neighbourhood.


If you are keen to assist (we urge as many residents as possible to assist) please send your name and details (incl. cell number, email address, occupation (to ensure we best use your skills)) to
