Uniting's Emergency Relief program provides an opportunity for vulnerable members of the community to access a range of supports, including donated items, vouchers, material goods and referrals to services.
People experiencing the effects of poverty often need support while they focus on building brighter days ahead. Uniting Emergency Relief services provide immediate financial and/or material support to people in financial crisis.
We work to empower people with the information, skills and tools they need to live a healthy, happy life. Sometimes it doesn’t take much for bills to spiral out of control. Individuals and families hit with unexpected expenses can quickly see their household budgets overwhelmed. Unemployment, illnesses or even back-to-school costs may leave people unable to pay the bills.
We provide support to local individuals and families in the form of material aid – food, clothing and household goods, back-to-school costs and bill payment assistance to people living in disadvantage.
