Mossman Community Centre provides a broad service to the Mossman and surrounding areas north to Cape Tribulation, Far North Queensland. Our closest major town is Cairns which is approximately 80kms from Mossman. The population of the Mossman area is 10,829 and we provide a service to a high percentage of Indigenous clients. The average weekly income for our area is $586 and weekly rent being $240.
Mossman Community Centre offers free counseling, court support, free activities. Our Emergency Relief programme is very important to our community. At Mossman there is no other service which offers relief as we do i.e., food parcels, assistance with medication, travel or fuel for people leaving a domestic violence situation; baby formula, clothing etc. Our emergency relief programme is a way of capturing those most in need and vulnerable and to hook them up with other support services, counselling, information, referral (health, housing, financial assistance etc). Our neighbouring community Port Douglas, although close in kilometres, is difficult to access without a vehicle or public transport, which means having to access tour buses and the likes and paying an very high bus fare.
