Crisis is different for every single person.

We at Uniting understand that crisis descends on different people in different ways. Everyone is different and so are their circumstances.

Uniting Winter Appeal

Crippling cost of living.

The rising cost of living is adding an extra burden of hardship for so many people every day.

And it can happen in a heartbeat. For people on the edge of crisis, every day can spell disaster and they have to make difficult choices.

To buy food or to pay a bill. To buy children’s shoes or to pay for petrol.

Our services work to support people with whatever hardships they face. We offer a depth and a breadth of service to help people in every way across Victoria and Tasmania. We are at the frontline assisting people in need every day. We understand the plight of people in crisis. Our experienced workers understand how to help and what to do.

Together we can support people in crisis find a safe place to live, put food on their table, connect with mental health support and feel hopeful for the future.

Help us to help others.

Together we can get through this crisis.

Nancy’s story

Hailing from Iran in search of a better life, Nancy’s* journey in Australia had so far been difficult.

In her mid-30s, Nancy had bravely escaped a violent relationship. Hailing from Iran, she now found herself alone with nowhere to go and no one to turn to.

Sadly, one in four women experience family violence. And rising costs not only add to family pressures but make it harder for those experiencing violence to leave the family home.

“It was a hard time,” said Nancy. “I didn’t know where to go, or what to do. I thought I can’t continue.”
