Community Support

Quercus Beechworth supports the community through the Beechworth Community Support Group. This support is provided in a number of ways including the innovative and well regarded Community Food Program.

Beechworth Community Support is a confidential and non-judgmental service that can provide financial assistance with utilities, fuel, emergency accommodation, pharmaceuticals and school costs. It operates through some government funding and the proceeds from the Arcade Op Shop.

If you or someone you know is need of some financial support please contact our volunteers on 0408 860 231 on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday from 10am-4pm, to make an appointment. Outside these hours you can contact the Beechworth Salvation Army services on 0427 503 948.
