Emergency Relief

Western Sydney MRC’s Emergency Relief service helps families and individuals with short term assistance in times of crisis. The assistance we are able to provide depends on individual assessment and circumstances.

Assistance is not always guaranteed, but we will always refer you to a relevant service if we aren’t able to assist you. Western Sydney MRC is not able to provide ongoing or long-term financial support but aim to provide immediate assistance to those in times of crisis.

Making an appointment

Please call us on 8778 1200 to make an appointment.

To make sure we make an accurate assessment of your situation, as well as help in the best way possible, please bring the documents below. Without these documents, we won’t be able to make an accurate assessment, and a new appointment will need to be scheduled. 

Proof of Income

Proof of income, either through Centrelink statements or payslips, for all family members.

Bank Statements

Current bank statements for all family members.


Original bills and receipts of payments made that will help us make an assessment.


Any other documentation that demonstrates expenses, such as rental receipts, medical costs and shopping receipts over the past three months.


Our emergency relief capabilities and offerings are made possible through DSS Funding.
