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) - Tuesdays & Thursdays
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 55 Berrima Street Wynnum every Tuesday & Thursday from 10:00am to 2:00pm.
The Redland Community Centre also provides ER food service from Head Office, 29 Loraine Street Capalaba – Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 10.00am – 2.00pm, and Wednesday 9:00am-12:00pm.
