We know that some of our school community are experiencing financial hardship. A list of agencies that can provide assistance to access food relief and essential items can be found here.
The Darebin Council website also discusses a range of other supports for community members. http://www.darebin.vic.gov.au/
Alternatively, the council has established a Community Navigation Service that supports people experiencing disadvantage or in a state of vulnerability by referring members of the community to appropriate services, support and information. They can be contacted on 8470 8888.
Our wellbeing coordinators Deanna and Jackie can also discuss referrals to emergency relief providers and financial counsellors. They can be contacted by calling the school on 9462 2177. They are always happy to chat.
