When times are hard, we are here.
Are you experiencing significant difficulties in meeting living expenses such as paying bills and having sufficient food and/or feeling socially isolated?
Our volunteer members respond to calls for assistance from people in need in their local community either through attendance at a Vinnies Support Centre or visiting people in their homes. We try to find the most appropriate response to meet your needs. This might involve having a friendly chat or it might include providing information, advocacy, food or food vouchers, clothing, furniture, budget support, assistance with utility bills or back to school costs.
Anyone can access this service providing you have an expressed a need for our assistance. We’re aware of the immense privilege it is to be invited into someone’s home and we are one of only a few Australian charities to carry out such visits. The visits are informal and our volunteer members are very sensitive to your situation and if you wish we can accompany you on your journey to move forward.
If you require assistance in the Perth Metropolitan area please call our Call Centre on 1300 794 054 weekdays 9:00am to 1:00pm.
