Since the Brisbane Floods, we have committed to helping our local community become prepared for natural disasters. Our neighbourhood centres have trained numerous community members so far, to help them to create emergency plans, pack emergency kits and general disaster preparedness.
We can help you to connect to services and support after a disaster, such as mental health support, accommodation, and flood relief.
