Emergency Relief - New Category Added to the iRefer VIC App

Due to the hardships experienced by many Australians as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an increase in Emergency Relief programs in Victoria.


Emergency relief provides immediate financial and/or material support to people in financial crisis. This can include food vouchers, food hampers, help paying phone bills, and more, depending on the service.

For a list of organisations providing emergency relief, check out the new 'Emergency Relief' category on the iRefer VIC app, available to download via Google Play and the App Store.
