Mission Australia – Emergency Relief

Emergency relief helps people to address their immediate basic needs in times of financial crisis or hardship through material or financial aid (e.g. vouchers, clothes and food parcels). Support is offered in a way that maintains the dignity of individuals and families and encourages self-reliance. As well as financial and material support, we also link people with services in the community to help them address the challenges that are affecting their financial wellbeing.

Emergency Relief is available every Tuesday morning in Geraldton and Carnarvon as well as every Thursday morning in Geraldton by appointment only. Please telephone at 8:00am on the day Emergency Relief is available to arrange an appointment.
