Centacare FNQ Emergency Relief

What is Emergency Relief?

Emergency Relief (ER) is the provision of financial and material aid to people in immediate need.

Centacare FNQ works with people on options available to assist them, including referrals to appropriate specialist agencies.

We can assist with the cost of prescriptions at 22-34 Aplin St, Cairns CBD. This service is available during business hours (9:00am - 4:30 pm)  for people experiencing financial hardship that live in the Cairns area. Assistance is assessed by Centacare staff in accordance with ER Guidelines.

What do I need to bring with me?

  • ID with a current address in the catchment area.
  • Your prescriptions.
  • Any documents that will help workers to assess your situation and provide assistance.
