Emergency Relief and Food Access Service

The Financial Counselling Network is a partnership of not-for-profit community service organisations including Anglicare WA and local government across the Perth metropolitan region who provide advice, assistance and education to people experiencing financial hardship.

The unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 crisis means that many Western Australians are now facing financial hardship, including those that may never have been in this situation before.

There are a number of community organisations throughout the state that provide emergency relief to people experiencing financial hardship, in the form of food vouchers, bill payment support and more.

The free-call Emergency Relief and Food Access Service is here to support you in identifying and applying for emergency relief.

Contact the service on 1800 979 777 from 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays), or alternatively by lodging an online enquiry if you are unable to make a phone call.

Emergency Relief assistance is available to support you:

  • If you are struggling to put food on the table
  • If you are facing overdue bills
  • If you have used your savings to pay for daily expenses due to COVID-19
  • If you have experienced a reduction in income

You may be eligible even if you are not receiving Centrelink income support.
