Financial hardship can strike anyone — an unexpected crisis, the loss of a job, health problems, family breakdown and a number of other reasons.
We provide emergency assistance in the form of food, fresh fruit and vegetables. We also provide some clothing and bedding, prescription filling, bus fares and a limited amount of financial help to meet the basic requirements of people in need. Nearly all of our clients cannot afford to put food on the table on a regular basis.
Information and referral to a variety of services is also provided, including help to find the right agency or department to deal with a problem. All people are treated in a non-judgmental manner with dignity and respect.
For all enquiries about emergency relief, please call our centre on 6248 7771 between 9:30am-2pm Monday to Friday.
