Residents of the Latrobe local government area who are in a financial crisis can apply for emergency relief. A financial crisis is a situation where you have become unable to provide basic needs for yourself or your family.
Other eligibility criteria may apply. Phone Latrobe Community Health Service on 1800 242 696 to discuss your individual situation.
Emergency relief is free. We encourage clients to call at 8.30am to ask about emergency relief. Latrobe Community Health Service is provided with limited funding for this service, and we often reach our budget within a couple of minutes of opening each morning. As a result clients who phone later in the day may miss out on assistance for that day.
