Information, Referral and Support

Support workers are available Monday to Friday to assist you with information, referrals, advocacy and other supports. Our support is free, confidential and non-judgemental and we will work with you based on your unique needs. We know it can be tricky navigating just where and how to get help, so don’t be afraid to reach out with anything, big or small. Whether it’s help filling a form, negotiating with a utility company, linking in with a service, or getting on top of your finances, we are here to support you!

The street pantry

The Street Pantry is a community managed project developed in conjunction with Mazon Australia and built by our friends at the Men’s Shed. It’s built on the philosophy, ‘give what you can, take what you need’.

If you are low on food, feel free to walk by and take what you need. Everyone is welcome. Likewise, if you would like to donate some non-perishable food, please do! The pantry is always in need of some love.
