The aim of the Utilities Support Program is to assist Gumala Members in meeting the rising costs of essential services, thereby improving the health and wellbeing of Gumala Members and their immediate family.
Members may apply for part or all of the total cost of their utility bill or account. The bill or account must be in the Member’s name or the Member’s spouse’s name (proof of relationship will be required).
Where the Member shares accommodation with other family or friends and the bill or account is not in their name, proof of shared accommodation must be provided e.g. lease agreement, proof of rental payments, etc. Assistance will not be approved if this evidence cannot be provided.
