Local providers can provide emergency relief services

Published: Thursday, 28 May 2020 at 1:18:09 PM

The Federal Government's Department of Social Services has provided the Shire with information about how to connect individuals and families experiencing financial crisis or who may need to access emergency relief with appropriate service providers.

The type of assistance offered by emergency relief providers may include food, clothing, vouchers, budgeting assistance and referral to other services.

Client eligibility to receive emergency relief is restricted to people unable to pay their bills or at imminent risk of not being able to do so.

Services are located in Geraldton and the links below will display local providers that may be able to assist.
