Free Social Welfare Referral Service

We understand that our members from time to time come up against difficult times in their lives and need assistance from government and community organisations. 

For this reason the SDA has compiled a Social Welfare Referral guide that our Officials can use to assist members in their time of need.

SDA's Information Officers can guide members through the wide range of services and benefits provided by Federal, State and Local Authorities, and show you how to apply for them.

The referral service covers such areas as:

  • Centrelink
  • Charitable organisations
  • Domestic violence services
  • Youth services
  • Alcohol and drug service
  • Victims of crime
  • Public housing

If you need help finding the correct organisation to be put in touch with, ring one of the SDA's Information Officers who will be happy to refer you to the appropriate service.
