About our Emergency Relief Service

The Emergency Relief Service at Wesley Mission Queensland's Brisbane Relief Hub helps people to address their immediate basic needs in times of financial crisis or hardship through material or financial aid via food parcels and vouchers.  Support is offered in a way that maintains the dignity of individuals and families and encourages self-reliance. We also link people with services available at Emergency Relief and throughout the community to help them address the challenges that are affecting their financial and general well-being.

As a vital part of our Emergency Relief Service, our volunteers can help in various ways, including:

  • Engaging with clients of the service, building rapport, and responding to emergency relief requests
  •  Purchasing, receiving, packing, storing, and dispatching food
  • Receiving and responding to phone calls and other enquires
  • Conducting basic intake and assessment interviews with clients 
  • Assisting in our social, lifestyle, and wellness groups
  • Cleaning and other office duties.
Volunteer shifts are available Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm.

Volunteering with our Emergency Relief Service is a wonderful, supportive, and fun experience and a way to ensure that individuals and families in need get a helping hand when they need it most.
Emergency Relief is a welcoming and rewarding place to volunteer, where you will meet many wonderful people from various backgrounds and learn great new skills that may assist you both personally and professionally. 

There are lots of other benefits to volunteering with us as well, such as:

  • Great education opportunities
  • Exclusive shopping discounts
  • Access to online and face-to-face wellness advisors
  • Invitations to social events
  • Being part of a team that is making a difference in the lives of people in our local community.

All our volunteers follow a COVID-19 safe work plan and provide proof they have received their initial two COVID-19 vaccinations before they are registered in their role.

Volunteers will also be required to have a suitable current security check on file at all times. If you do not have a security check, this can be applied for through Wesley Mission Queensland at no cost to you.
