The Canberra Relief Network
The Canberra Relief Network is a collaboration of community service organisations in the ACT supported by the ACT Government in response to the sudden and overwhelming demand for food and non-perishable household essentials item that is occurring and is expected to increase as a direct result of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The Canberra Relief Network is led by UnitingCare Kippax and was established in recognition that this unprecedented crisis disproportionately impacts individuals in our community who were already vulnerable: current food pantry and community service clients and individuals who receive various forms of government income support. The economic crisis precipitated by the COVID-19 Pandemic means that we anticipate that a new group of individuals who have never interacted with the social welfare system will find themselves in need. The Canberra Relief Network will be a central point for procurement and distribution to organisations. This will enable and empower organisations to focus on the unprecedented demand in addition to existing caseloads.
Hands Across Canberra facilitates donations to this network and its affiliates.
