What We Do

Sydney Help Hub

To apply for emergency relief use this link. Sydney Help Hub is funded via the Department of Social services to provide emergency relief for those affected by bushfires and COVID-19, and supports eligible families from across Greater Sydney who are assessed to be experiencing financial hardship via collection appointments, outreach events, the distribution of items of need and free food service each Thursday between approximately 12.45pm and 1.30pm at our Campsie venue (34 North Parade Campsie). Our highly popular free clothing and goods events and partnership activities are also an important part of this initiative and are attended by thousands of families each year.
