Emergency Relief

We help clients by providing food packs, food vouchers, personal hygiene packs, clothing and furniture. We can also assist in the payment and management of electricity, gas or phone bills.

Food packs are provided without appointment, to anyone who needs it.

Assessment appointments are made for people requiring vouchers and further assistance. In these assessment appointments, you will sit down with an Emergency Assistance officer to work through your finances and find how we can help you. Depending on your situation we may provide you with food vouchers, vouchers for clothing and furniture from our City Mission Op Shops, or assist you in paying certain bills.
