Community safety and wellbeing

The City of Yarra works closely with a number of agencies, including Victoria Police and the State Government, to improve safety in public places and support the social, physical and mental health of our community.

We recognise that some people in our community have complex needs and may require specialised support, so we have developed the ‘Immediate Help Locally’ resource. We have also translated it into the following languages:

You can also search for local support services that may be available immediately by using this free online tool - Ask Izzy.

For additional help, refer to our pages on Emergency Food Relief in Yarra, Homelessness and Rough Sleeping and Support for Local Drug-Related Issues

Please note that in an emergency always call 000.
