Emergency Relief

Emergency Relief is a Commonwealth Government and State Government funded program which provides financial assistance to the communities of Whyalla, Port Lincoln, Ceduna, Coober Pedy and Port Augusta.

Clients are provided with an Emergency Relief appointment where their immediate crisis and needs are discussed to assess whether assistance is required. Identification (such as a pension card or drivers licence) and proof of income (eg Centrelink Statement or Payslips) are often requested to be provided to aid the provider in understanding your current circumstance.

Assistance often includes, but is not limited to:

Food & Clothing Vouchers
Transport (including Petrol vouchers)
Chemist/Medical needs
