What are Community Support Centres?
Community Support Centres provide a welcoming, safe space where people experiencing hardship and/or social isolation can access a range of supports including:
- Financial and material assistance, including emergency relief
- Social support
- Advice and referrals
In general an initial assessment is conducted by appointment at the Centre and follow up support is then provided by members of the St Vincent de Paul Society through home visitation.
