Crisis Support and Emergency Relief

Southern Peninsula Community Support and Information Centre offers support to people in crisis in a welcoming and non-judgmental environment. Our services are provided by trained and friendly volunteer staff from the local community who are:

  • Readily available to listen and offer impartial support
  • Respect the right of the individual to make their own decisions
  • Link people into services appropriate to their individual needs

Crisis support staff provide information, referral and practical assistance in the form of material aid. Emergency relief material aid is available to Southern Peninsula residents on a low income who are experiencing financial hardship and a crisis or emergency event and may include food vouchers, transportation assistance, medical needs and other financial aid. Guidelines and eligibility criteria apply.

The service aims to assist individuals and families to be independent and aware of their rights, develop positive outcomes and create sustainable solutions.

ELIGBILITY: SPCSIC services are available to people who live in the Southern Mornington Peninsula area (see map below)
