Need Help?

Welfare

The Salvos are known for helping people with the basics of life, and it's no different at Warrnambool.

Appointments for food assistance can be made between 9.30 and 12.00 noon, 1.30 and 4.00 pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Naturally, we want to help everyone, however given the large demand for our services, we must insist on you making an appointment.

In cases of extreme urgency, we may be able to help with a small hamper of food to keep you going until an appointment is available.
