QLD and VIC Flood Disaster Relief

The recent floods in Queensland and Victoria have devastated homes, businesses and lives.  When the waters subside, the damage will still remain and there is much rebuilding to be done.

One way you can help Queenslanders is to donate to the Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal. This appeal is for financial donations only.

If you wish to donate goods/clothing, go the givit website.

Another way to help is to offer accommodation to those affected by the floods: oz flood help

You can also volunteer to help with the flood recovery in affected areas in QLD.

If you have been affected by the floods in Queensland, you can use this form to apply for flood relief.

You can help in the Victorian floods by registering as a volunteer to help with the emergency cleanup, donate funds or offer accommodation to those affected in Victoria.

The most important aspect of donating is making sure your donations go to the right place and to the right people. If you are unsure of any charity or organisation, you need to check out scamwatch and be informed about who is legitimate and who is not.
