What are Community Support Centres?

Community Support Centres provide a range of support to people 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.
