ASSISTANCE DURING COVID

As ZAWA, we remain actively engaged with our community groups online and are working closely with local organisations to see if there is anything we can do to provide a little extra assistance during this time. As we face the challenge of isolation and social distancing, we want to promote and maintain a healthy and connected community. 

We can all play a part in supporting each other during these unprecedented and challenging times. We are grateful for your generosity in supporting students and all who have been adversely affected in these unprecedented times.

For those who would like to donate toward this project, or receive assistance –  please complete the Expression of Interest form 

Support for people experiencing hardship
  • If you or someone you know is experiencing hardship or homelessness, help can be found in a number of local support services that cover food, accommodation and financial aid. You can also complete the Expression of Interest Form and we will assist you.
  • If your financial circumstances have changed due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, you may be eligible for assistance through the funds raise by our community toward this initiative.
  • The Federal Government has also announced that if you are a casual worker or laid off as a result of COVID-19, you can apply for the new Centrelink JobSeeker Payment. The waiting period will be waived. You can find out more by visiting the Services Australia website.
  • The WA Government has announced that it will freeze household fees and charges until at least 1 July 2021 as part of its economic response to COVID-19. This means residents will still be billed but there will be no increase to fees and charges.
