Support to get people through a difficult time

With a dedicated and compassionate team of employees, students and volunteers, we provide a safe, welcoming environment where people are heard and respected.

Across Victoria and Tasmania, our emergency relief services offer practical resources and a listening ear from someone who cares.  

Our services include:
  • Food
  • Personal care items
  • Material aid
  • Bills and expense assistance
  • Links to other services.

Students studying a Diploma of Community Services or above are encouraged to apply for placements at one of our Emergency Relief Centres
