The floods in Southeast Queensland, the Northern Rivers of NSW and in Western Sydney have devastated towns and communities. Our thoughts are with all affected!
Many of LCSA’s members at Neighbourhood and Community Centres in these regions have been impacted by the rising flood waters as severe weather over many days and weeks brought high totals of rain to large areas of the state.
The recovery efforts are already underway as hundreds and thousands of people volunteer alongside emergency response services to assist in the clean-up which will take weeks, months and in some cases years, to get the community back on its feet.
Support those Impacted by Floods
If you would like to assist in the recovery effort by donating items or volunteering your time to support the people and communities affected by the floods, the following list of organisations are currently running appeals and providing relief services.
Also, a number of LCSA Members in the Northern District of NSW and in Western Sydney are providing practical support and relief to vulnerable community members at their local Neighbourhood and/or Community Centre. Check their social media accounts for ways in which you can assist them and their community at this time, as they are regularly posting updates and announcements.
