St. Benedict’s Community Day Centre
We believe that Food, Safe Shelter and Financial Assistance should be made available to anyone who needs help, without judgement or prejudice. As such, Queanbeyan Uniting Church works in partnership with a number of Queanbeyan churches to support the work of St. Benedict’s Community Day Centre.
What services does St. Benedict’s offer?
St Benedict’s trained, equipped and caring team of staff and volunteers can provide support with the following:
- Crisis support
- Accomodation assistance
- Referral to other services
- Practical assistance
- Time out, and assistance to develop a support plan
- Follow-up after you’re housed
- Meals, tea and coffee
When you come into the Centre the Case Worker will assist you to identify your needs. If you wish, the worker will assist you to draw up a support plan. The support plan identifies how your needs can best be met, and the tasks which need to be undertaken by you and the worker. Referrals to other services may also be discussed with you.
