Thanks to a small grant from StreetSmart, we have a few vouchers to support our families and carer households toward the cost of fuel.
With recent hikes in fuel prices, combined with the impact of local flooding, the cost of living is adding up. All families in Ngunya Jarjum’s Gumaguy and OOHC (carer) teams are able to access this service.
In particular, the fuel vouchers will target families or care givers that have needed to travel more as a result of the floods to access medical or other essential services.
Some examples include:
Note: Basic details are required only to assess eligibility and once the vouchers are gone we will not be getting anymore – so it is a once-of opportunity.
StreetSmart was founded by Adam Robinson in 2003. It was while working at a small youth service in Dandenong, in the outer suburbs of Melbourne, he gained first hand experience of the many barriers to funding that grassroots organisations face. The aim of founding StreetSmart was to simultaneously break down inaccurate prejudices about homelessness, raise vital funds for important smaller, local organisations and strengthen them through collaboration and connecting them to their community.
