Providing access to the support YOU need in Wynnum
The Wynnum Community Place supports the community through a number of valuable “one stop shop” community focused services including:
Emergency Relief (ER)
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 deal with ongoing disadvantages.
The aim of ER is to assist people experiencing a crisis in a way that maintains their dignity and encourages self-reliance and promotes clients towards sustainability.
Wynnum Community Place delivers the ER program from 154 Bay Terrace Wynnum; every Tuesday from 9:00am -2:30pm.
The Redland Community Centre also provides ER food service from Head Office, 29 Loraine Street Capalaba; Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 10.00am – 2.00pm

Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous Program
Come down every Thursday and meet Mick he runs our AA and NA program. Mick has lived experience previously living with addiction, homelessness and a number of lingering mental health issues. However Mick turned that all around and has now been sober 48 years, now taking in and supporting people who are going through what he did. He could not be a better avenue for support and advocacy as he understands exactly what help is required to brake the cycle.
Alcoholics Anonymous is a “one day at a time” way of living. We try to break life into small pieces we can handle. We stay sober one day at a time, or when necessary, one hour at a time. We do our jobs one task at a time. We solve our problems one problem at a time. We clean up our past one mess at a time.
Narcotics Anonymous. Perhaps you admit you have a problem with drugs, but you don’t consider yourself an addict. All of us have preconceived ideas about what an addict is. There is nothing shameful about being an addict once you begin to take positive action. If you can identify with your problems, you may be able to identify with our solution.
