Wildfire Recovery

After the tragic fires in February which cost so many lives and destroyed thousands of homes, the Victorian community opened their hearts and produced an overwhelming response. More than 180 million dollars was generously donated to the bushfire appeal and tens of thousands of people registered to volunteer their time.

There will be further opportunities for volunteers as the longer term effort is required to rebuild communities. This webpage is a collection of contact details and organisations that are involved in the recovery and rebuilding.

If you're affected by bushfire and looking for help visit the Department of Human Services' information page at www.dhs.vic.gov.au/emergency/current-events/bushfire or the ABC Bushfire Help Page.
