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.
