COVID-19 Update:  The health and wellbeing of our clients, visitors, contractors and employees is of paramount importance.  We are taking steps to minimise wherever possible any impacts on our clients, our services and operations.  

Emergency Relief Program

Emergency Relief assistance is available from the Youth Service Resource Centre at 24 Lawrence Street Gympie. Emergency Relief is available Monday-Friday from 1pm to 3pm to young people who are aged up to 25 years. An appointment is not necessary – we operate on a first in first served basis and waiting times vary according to demand. Applicants must bring an income statement from Centrelink.

We can assist in times of financial crisis with:

  • Food
  • Accommodation
  • Transport
  • Medical assistance
  • Emergency payment of bills

We can also make referrals to specialist services and provide assistance with budgeting.

Financial Counselling is available through our Financial Literacy & Resilience Program.  Ask a Youth Service staff member to organise an appointment for you or contact them directly on 53437525.
