In 2018, Community Support Frankston (CSF) is celebrating 50 years in our community. Originally named the Frankston Citizens’ Advice Bureau (CAB), CSF was one of the first community services to be established in Frankston when it commenced in 1968.

With 15,372 volunteer hours put into keeping CSF's doors open last financial year, we also struggle to find the funds and resources needed to keep up record numbers of requests for help from individuals and families experiencing extreem poverty and hardship.

In addition to being a place where people can access essential material aid (such as food, shopping vouchers, assistance with bills, housing costs, education and essential medicines), CSF is an essential resource for local information, support and advocacy for Frankston residents who have nowhere else to turn for help.

CSF’s skilled volunteer community workers are put through nationally accredited training to provide support to people with complex needs. In the last financial year, CSF volunteers responded to more than 10,000 face to face assistance session, a record number requests for assistance in the agencies history.

To mark CSF’s 50 years of service to the Frankston community we need your help in raising $50,000 for programs and services and we thank you for your kind donation.

Where does the money go?

Funds raised will support CSF's various programs and services, includng the distribution of Emergency Releief Aid. In the last 10 year CSF has distributed more than 3.5 million dollars in Emergency Releif to local people in severe financial hardship.
