Emergency Relief Service 

At Work For The Soul, we have developed emergency relief programs that are designed to alleviate hardships for people who are experiencing an immediate crisis.

We know the unfortunate circumstances some people are facing; very low incomes with insufficient financial resources for day-to-day needs, domestic violence, homelessness, illness and family breakdown, to name a few.  We understand that for some people these challenges make it extremely difficult to function and care for themselves and their families.

Work For The Soul assists by providing food from our Food For Thought food rescue service and orders can be made for food parcels weekly.

Our Emergency Relief Vouchers are supplied to other support agencies for distribution. Vouchers are also available from Work For The Soul on application.                                        

Our Vouchers are only redeemable through our Penny Pinchers Op Shop and can be used to purchase any item in the store.

We believe once immediate hardships have been removed people will have a greater chance to be empowered and have a small glimpse of more positive days ahead.
