Knox Emergency Relief Network

The Knox Emergency Relief Network is a network of agencies and organisations that provide emergency relief and material aid such as food vouchers and food parcels to people in financial crisis living within the City of Knox.

The objectives of the network are:

  • To provide networking opportunities for members
  • To create better links between services
  • To support individuals within the network and provide professional learning opportunities
  • To advocate on client’s behalf around systemic issues (eg, housing stress, food stress); and
  • To explore collaboration and partnerships between providers.

Who runs the Network?

The Network is attended by local community agencies and supported by Knox Infolink.
