I am a facilitator with Northern Victoria Farmer Relief. I have been working at this as a volunteer since May 2016.
I have a prickly case of a family from NZ not eligible for any benefits through Centrelink or the Govt Farm Household Allowance.
Husband has broken his back, wife became unemployed on the same day.
We can get them food and some relief on school costs and fodder but looking to find info on where I can send them for some help for the next 3 months with general bills? With the crisis in the dairy industry at the moment they are producing milk at a higher cost than what they are getting for it (as are hundreds of other dairy farmers). They have a good, established farm, want to stay in Australia and want to keep dairy farming. All they need is some help to get through this stage until the husband gets back on his feet.
Our local St Vinnies are not taking on any more clients as they have spent $50000 helping locals already.
I am currently on Newstart and after rent and phone credit I have under $100 to live on for a fortnight. I've been managing to hang in there for a few months but its now bee almost 4 weeks with nothing but bread to eat. I can't afford to get to any organisation to get food parcel. I have NO friends or family, I am alone all day every day. PLEASE SOMEONE TELL ME THERE IS A PLACE THAT CAN HELPVisit member >
