Emergency Relief

Provides one-off financial & material assistance to address immediate basic needs in times of crisis. Emergency relief can act as a safety net for people experiencing financial distress or hardship and who have limited means or resources to help them alleviate their crisis.

Types of assistance offered by ER providers may include food, clothing, vouchers, budgeting assistance and referrals to other services.

Services only available in the Walgett, Lightning Ridge and Moree LGAs.

General Mediation

Our Family Services program offers conflict resolutions services to cover workplace, community, and family mediation situations that may not fall within funded service streams. These are organised on a fee-for-service arrangement, in negotiation with parties.

We also offer family mediations for situations that fall outside our funding streams. Examples of these mediations include mediating child protection arrangements, assisting a family of adults who were able to agree on particular family issues and mediating families who have long-held and consistent disputes (unrelated to children or a separation) to move forward.

NDIS Plan Management

Plan Management oversees financial aspects of NDIS plans for people who wish for their funding to be “plan-managed” (as opposed to agency or self-managed). This involves:

  • Paying invoices from service providers and suppliers;
  • Providing financial reports each month or by request;
  • Liaising with a wide range of stakeholders;
  • Sharing our knowledge of the NDIS and undertaking administrative tasks for clients and their families;
  • Establishing a portal so that authorised individuals can access details of budgets and service bookings.
