Food Aid Project
Arab Council Australia can provide assistance with food and groceries to families and people in need.
This service is means-tested and qualified Arab Council staff assess clients before referring them to receive food aid.
Generally, recipients of this service are low income families or those facing financial hardships, isolated older people, carers, unemployed persons, persons who are homeless and others deemed to be in need of assistance.
Energy Accounts Payment Assistance (EAPA) scheme
EAPA voucher assistance is available through Arab Council to help people having difficulty paying their home gas or electricity bills because of financial hardship, crisis or emergency situation.
The EAPA scheme aims to help people in such situations stay connected to essential energy services and is not intended to offer ongoing income support.
Eligibility criteria to this service apply and an assessment by a qualified Arab Council staff member will be conducted.
Please contact Arab Council Australia for further information
