Preston Community support services

Help is closer than you think

If you’re facing a crisis, we’re here to help meet the immediate needs of you and your family.

Without a safe place to stay, enough food for your family, or even necessities such as clothing for the kids, tomorrow can feel like a long way off.

Our emergency relief services help relieve the stresses you’re facing today. If you find yourself in a tough spot, reach out and let us help

Building towards tomorrow

Once your immediate needs have been met, we can also help with your next steps. We can talk to your utility providers about that outstanding bill, help you connect with Centrelink about getting a job, talk to police, or recommend other support services.

Once you’re in a safe and stable environment we can help you plan for the future.
