With the announcement of the stage four lockdown in Metropolitan Melbourne, we know it’s going to be an even tougher six weeks for many Melburnians, especially for our most vulnerable community members. We’ve collated a list of some helplines and services that we hope help you and your loved ones get through the next six weeks.
We will try our best to continue to provide bags of essentials to vulnerable Victorians over the next six weeks.
