The Hut’s Emergency Relief program provides short term support to people living in the Adelaide Hills and Mount Barker Council areas.

We aim to provide assistance to people who are experiencing personal financial difficulties due to a change of circumstances such as sudden unemployment, sickness, credit over-commitment, mortgage stress and family breakdown.

Assistance can be provided for the purchase of groceries and essential household items, fuel vouchers, part payments for vehicle registration and energy bills.

Staff will also provide information regarding any entitlement to benefits and concessions, can assist with putting together a budget to help manage daily living expenses, and provide referrals to other services if required.

Eligibility criteria apply. Contact The Hut to make an appointment on (08) 8339 4400

Funding is provided by the Department of Human Services.
