State School Relief (SSR)

Who is eligible?

State Schools’ Relief provides support to any Victorian student attending a government school (primary, secondary or specialist), on the advice of the school.
Schools are able to submit an application directly, via our online portal, whenever they believe there is a need to support a student whose family/carers are facing difficulty in providing the appropriate uniform, footwear or educational items for attending school.

  • Situations include, but are not limited to:
  • Unemployment
  • Health issues/illness
  • Financial difficulties
  • Independent living and/or homelessness
  • Natural disasters, house fires
  • Bereavement
  • Domestic violence

All applications need to be arranged with the school front office, these are processed within 24 – 48 hours and you will receive confirmation of application/s by email.

Orders will then be delivered to the school within 4 working days, and the office staff will advise you when these items are ready to collect from the school office.
