  • What We Do

When life is challenging, we can all use a little help along the way. Fortunately, the Sunshine Coast offers a wealth of resources to the community, including assistance with legal issues, support with parenting, programs addressing violence, help with aging in place, and much more. In fact, with so many services it can be difficult to know which way to turn.

This is where the we come in. 

Are you wondering whether there are resources to help you with your situation?

We’re your one-stop shop.

The Resource Centre is the Sunshine Coast’s community information hub that can refer you to the most suitable service or program. We spend our time keeping up to date on the available services, so that you don’t have to.

Here are just a few questions we have answers to:

  • Where is the food bank?
  • Who can help me with income assistance or finding employment?
  • Is there someone who can help me fill in this government form?
  • Where can I find out about volunteering opportunities on the Sunshine Coast?
  • Where can I get information about negotiating with my landlord?
  • And if you’ve got a question that we haven’t encountered before, we’ll do our best to find the organization who can answer it.

How can the Resource Centre help?

We are a “one-stop shop”, the first place to come when you’re looking for a community, social or government service or program. We offer support, assistance, information and referrals. We have information available on various resources and our staff and volunteers can assist you with finding information online. We are able to refer you to the most appropriate program or service for your situation.

Who do you help?

We help anyone who has a question about how to navigate and get connected to the social, government, legal and community services that will be the best support. Everyone is welcome.

How does the Resource Centre work?

We spend time getting to know you and your situation so that we can connect you with one or more organizations that can help you take the next step. There is no cost for our service.

How do I contact the Resource Centre?

During the Covid-19 pandemic and until further notice, the best way to reach us is by phone or email.
