Disaster recovery support is available
The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) supports families and communities across Australia with disaster recovery support. Following events such as floods, bushfires, cyclones, drought, and other hardships like the COVID-19 pandemic.
NEMA delivers real impact and leadership by working with local communities, and in collaboration with state and local governments. So that people are better prepared for, and supported during, disasters and emergencies.
The Agency has Recovery Support Officers located across Australia. These officers understand from their own experiences what people face as they recover and rebuild. They can:
- help connect you with the right support for your situation
- provide information, referrals and engage to gather front line information
- represent the Agency at community forums and events
You can visit our Recovery Support Officer page to learn more and find support close to your location.
If you have been impacted by a disaster you can visit Disaster Assist to access information about Local Government Areas which have been declared natural disasters.
