Emergency Food Boxes
We’re leading by example and being a Good Neighbour by partnering with the Rapid Relief Team to deliver food boxes to vulnerable residents who are self-isolating.
Blue Mountains City Council has launched the Mayor’s Wellbeing Register - to help ensure the safety of our most vulnerable community members.
The Mayor’s Wellbeing Register allows members of the community to register vulnerable, or at risk residents of the Blue Mountains local government area, with Council. You can register for yourself, or on behalf of someone you are concerned about.
Council then contacts those residents to assist them in accessing the support services they need in this challenging time, including welfare checks or emergency food boxes.
If you know someone who may be eligible for this program, please contact Council. A community development officer will then be in touch.
All registrations will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and prioritised based on those in greatest need.
If you would like to make an addition to the Mayor’s Wellbeing Register please contact Council at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 4723 5000 (Lower Mountains) or 4780 5000 (Upper Mountains).
This initiative is inspired by a recent Fairfield City Council program and complements Council’s Good Neighbour program introduced in 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic
