Merriwa BRANCH

Hunter New England Region

Assisting our community, locally…


Can Assist Merriwa was formed in 2020. The branch was established to financially support community members of Merriwa and surrounding settlements so their road to wellness is somewhat alleviated.

Areas Serviced: Cassilis, Merriwa, Sandy Hollow

Financial Assistance

We understand that families struggle to cope with a reduced income as a result of a cancer diagnosis and that they face increased expenses from travel, accommodation and medical costs.

Our Supporters

Our Branch would not exist without our members, volunteers and supporters both from within the community and further afield. Can Assist expresses our thanks.

If Karen and her husband were living in any other state or territory in the country they would have received a higher rebate – in fact, up to $72 a night higher.

On average, a resident of country NSW will receive $42.32c less a night than the rest of the country. What a disgrace!

Thank you Dr Joe McGirr MP and Helen Dalton MP for helping to bring this injustice to light.
