What is the service?
Emergency Relief is a service solely run by St Vincent de Paul volunteers to provide support to people who are struggling and need a hand to get through a tough time.
We assist people by either asking the m to visit one of our emergency relief centres or if they have physical disabilities preventing them, we may make a home visit. Help can be provided in the form of clothes, food, bedding, furniture, short term accommodation and assistance with bills assessments are made case by case basis. If problems are ongoing, then we also make referrals to programs such as financial counselling services or to our conference volunteers who may make a house visit.
Please be aware the service only operates on specific days and times.
