ER Overview :

ER is the provision of financial or material assistance to people who affected by the conflict and caught up in extraordinary life-threatening situation and facing financial crisis. Some vulnerable access ER to help them through a ‘one-off’ episode; while for others ER becomes part of their solution to dealing with ongoing financial disadvantage. The aim of ER is to assist people experiencing financial crisis in a way that maintains dignity and encourages self-reliance.

Assistance usually comprises:

The provision of financial or material aid to meet an immediate need – this may include cash assistance, assistance with paying utility bills, food vouchers, food parcels, clothing or household goods; and Information and referrals that may help to resolve the underlying problems experienced by the affected person – for example a referral to a financial counselor. This is not always possible and beneficiary may choose not to take up the referral option.

Research and the experiences of social services are constantly improving our understanding about the reasons for poverty and disadvantage. For example, ER providers also record the reasons for beneficiary’s’ difficulties in data collected. In response and with peoples’ permission, they often attempt to initiate longer-term solutions to these problems. In addition, ER providers can play a vital role in informing policy makers about the root causes of poverty and social exclusion through advocacy, the appropriate use of data and referral systems, and local, regional, state and national networks.
