Assistance with basic living needs

$

Distressing stories are coming through all the time to our community visitors about situations where jobs have been lost; people have been exposed to COVID 19 and expected to self isolate in crowded accommodation. Those on bridging visas, and that is most households we visit, have virtually no Covid19 related entitlements or general Centrelink access. They also may or may not have Medicare entitlements. Often these households had been managing well and our visitors’ support has been limited to home visits, friendship, chats, encouragement and periodic food vouchers. Now everything has changed.
 
BMRSG is providing basic assistance and food from BMRSG funds for those we visit who now have no income. Currently we are paying the rent in full or in part for 7 households. Our Community Visitors have been working with households to find food banks and organisations who are funded to provide vouchers for electricity.
