There are many reasons why people find themselves in a financial crisis – health problems, unexpected bills, challenging family circumstances. It can be difficult in Denmark-Walpole being so far from family, friends, and large government and welfare organisations when you need help.
There are, however, a small number of community groups in the region who offer assistance. The Parish (through communal giving and Mustard Seed proceeds) and the Diocese of Bunbury (through St Boniface Care) provide emergency relief in Denmark-Walpole.
Supermarket, fuel, gas bottles, and Mustard Seed Op Shop vouchers
can be applied for at the
Denmark Community Resource Centre
2 Strickland St, Denmark
(note: gas bottles reinstated as funds became available)
Monday – Friday 9am – 4pm
closing 12 noon on the first Friday of each month
outside of these hours contact the parish on 9848 2173
Financial counselling from Anglicare is recommended, and required after three applications before further assistance can be given.
