Emergency Relief (ER)

WHAT IS IT?

Emergency Relief can take many forms eg. food voucher, pharmacy and in the case of a medical appointment you may be entitled for a fuel voucher (confirmation of appointment is needed), telstra voucher, fair play vouchers etc.

The type and level of support provided is in response to the person’s circumstances, presenting unmet need  and the level of support varies whether its for a family unit or individual.

Those who access ER may be referred to other programs both internal to GBNC and/or to other agencies that provide services in the Granite Belt.

WHO?

Emergency Relief is available to eligible individuals (including backpackers), couples, and families to assist with essential items.

If you receive a Centrelink payment you are required to bring a copy of your income statement. In the instance of loss of employment, please bring a copy of your stand down/termination letter.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

When ER is ‘open’ you can simply visit GBNC and wait in turn until seen.  Each person is only able to access ER four times per financial year.

WHEN?

Emergency Relief is held bi-monthly in the months of February, April, June, August, October, December.

It is held on Monday, Wednesday & Friday between the times of 10am till 11:30am.
