Emergency Relief (ER) is the provision of material or financial assistance to people in crisis. Some clients access ER to help them through a ‘one-off’ episode; while for others, ER becomes part of their solution to dealing with ongoing disadvantage. The aim of ER is to assist people experiencing a crisis in a way that maintains dignity and encourages self-reliance.
