Finding it hard to pay credit card payment as recently became unemployed

I’ve recently become unemployed and although I’ve registered with Centrelink, I’m still finding it hard to get employment, my benefit is $300 a week which is not even enough to live on... I’m feeling extremely over whelmed not knowing what to do as I can’t afford any of my repayments, for this credit account or my others, I would appreciate any advice on what I can do.
