Financial & Food Assistance

If you find yourself in an immediate crisis and in need of material or financial assistance, we have help available. Our aim is to meet your immediate material needs, whilst working to understanding your situation. We want to assist you with any underlying long-term issues to prevent you from falling into, or deeper into, the poverty cycle. [click logo]

As costs for day-to-day expenses such as rent, food, and power continue to rise, a setback such as a sickness, loss of a job or an unexpected bill can make you feel your financial situation is getting out of control. Anglicare can provide immediate practical assistance and longer-term solutions to help you build a more hopeful future. [click logo]

Anyone who is experiencing financial hardship may benefit from the service. Our call center staff will forward your request for assistance to the volunteer members located nearest to you. Our volunteer members will then make a home visit and provide relevant assistance. Emergency relief may be given in the form of food parcels, food vouchers, and assistance with utility bills, clothing, furniture, and referral. The assistance given is based on the assessment conducted by our volunteer members at the time of the home visit. [click logo]
