South East NSW Bushfire Crisis – Impact, Response & Recovery Report

Community Industry Group recently released the South East NSW Bushfire Crisis – Impact, Response & Recovery Report

We worked directly with service providers in disaster-affected areas, and heard first-hand accounts of the impact on individuals, families and communities. We have heard about what has been and is currently being done, what should be done, and how bushfire affected communities are recovering and rebuilding.

Our report also includes seven recommendations for recovery.

  1. Employment Issues
  2. Children, Families and Young People
  3. Aged Services
  4. Disability
  5. Housing and Homelessness
  6. Mental Health
  7. Community Development and Support

We are advocating for the recommendations to be implemented and encourage community service organisations and individuals to get involved.

We need your help to get these recommendations implemented.

We have created a template letter that you can use to send to your local Member of Parliament. Please feel free to use the text as is, or to personalise it to describe the impacts on your clients or organisation.
