Beacon Emergency Relief
Beacon Emergency Relief is one of our major initiatives to provide assistance to members of the community who are struggling to make ends meet. We have a number of trained volunteers available to assist people who walk in off the street or co-ordinate appointments with people. Our volunteers are able to sit with people to help evaluate their needs. We have an onsite pantry which is well stocked and access to financial assistance through various voucher systems set up with business that are will to make these available.

Beacon is currently located at the Blackwood Church of Christ office. The emergency relief service is currently open on Wednesdays from 9am – 1pm. We will expand opening hours as we are able to recruit volunteers.
Our grateful thanks must go to the following local businesses who assist us in our ministry to the community:
- Flight Centre Blackwood donate 1% of sales from every customer who books with them and mentions Beacon.
- Foodland Blackwood cover the production costs of electronic vouchers that we can put credits on.
