EMERGENCY RELIEF

The primary target of HCA's Emergency Relief program is to provide a safety net for families and individuals experiencing financial distress or hardship and have limited means or resources to help them alleviate their financial crisis.

 

Depending on individual circumstances the assistance we are able to provide for those in financial crisis includes food/petrol vouchers, medications, help with utility bills (electricity, gas, water and Telstra), referral to other agencies.

 

Our assistance is based on individual assessment.

 

Appointments can be made from 9:30am for the following locations:
