Communicare welcomes the announcement that we have been successful in our application to deliver Commonwealth Emergency Relief funding at various sites across the Perth metropolitan area, Bunbury (Busselton) and Mandurah.
Many individuals and families we work with may experience unexpected financial distress or hardship.
The new service – known as the Emergency Assistance Program, will enable us to work with individuals and families already engaged in a Communicare program and experiencing a financial crisis.
It provides us with an opportunity to look beyond the immediate need for relief and work proactively with the individual and their family, developing strategies to minimise or avoid issues that have contributed to them requiring emergency assistance, in the first place.
The Emergency Assistance Program is a long-term funding arrangement which will run to 30 June 2023 and will be managed through our Children, Families and Community Directorate.
