CMCS provides Emergency relief to assist people to improve their financial capacity and resilience and help them deal with immediate financial difficulties in a way that maintains the dignity of the person and encourage self – reliance.
As a result of the outbreak of COVID-19 many people are struggling to make ends meet. In response CMCS will be increasing our Emergency Relief program for the foreseeable future. This includes support with food and essential items. Please contact us for further information.
CMCS also provides support with EAPA (Energy Accounts Payment Assistance) for electricity and gas bills, as well as support with PAS (Payment Assistance Scheme) for Sydney Water bills (eligibility for EAPA & PAS applies)
