It is all too easy to find yourself in a difficult period of life and in need of help – losing your job through redundancy, illness or injury; finding yourself in a situation of relationship violence or breakdown; struggling with parenthood or caring for other family members; dealing with issues of alcohol, drugs or gambling.
UnitingCare Kippax can help. Our experienced and qualified counsellors can assist with things like food hampers, gift cards to purchase fresh food, support with medical and pharmaceutical bills and bus tickets, help with housing and legal aid, and financial counselling. In winter we can assist with warm clothing and bedding.
Emergency financial and material aid is offered to all who live in Canberra and surrounding areas.
We also co-ordinate the Canberra-wide Christmas Gift Appeal & Teenage Gift appeal for families living in disadvantage and poverty.
