What is the Helpline?
Our friendly staff and volunteers at the Helpline will put you in touch with our home visitation experts where support may include the following; assistance with a food parcel or a food voucher, clothing, furniture, budget support, possible financial assistance, information and advocacy.

Who can access the Helpline?
Our service is available to everyone; low income earners, unemployed, singles, families, migrants & refugees. If you are in need for any reason please contact us for assistance.

Once our operators have taken some personal details and ascertained your needs we will arrange for a home visitation from our volunteers.

What are the benefits of accessing the Helpline?
There are times when it all gets a bit too much; all the bills have arrived at once, the kids need school shoes, you have just lost your job or illness has left you low.

The Society offers a hand up in difficult times and is a transition service to help get you back on your feet.

Can I volunteer for the Helpline?
Yes, please call 3010 1000 or reception@svdpqld.org.au
