Through the generous support of Queenslanders, Lifeline Community Recovery is prepared to be where we are most needed in response to Tropical Cyclone Marcia.
This is the event we have been preparing for: We have Community Recovery Officers on the ground supporting those directly affected with Psychological First Aid.
Our Community Recovery Officers, many who are volunteers, reduce the stress and trauma a natural disaster can cause for individuals, families and communities by being there as soon as the disaster hits. We recognise issues caused by disasters can last for years and we aim to be there for the long haul.
After Lifeline Community Recovery has been 'activated' at the request of State and Local Government authorities we do receive funds from the Government to cover the costs of providing immediate support. However the costs of training volunteers and staying with the community in the long term are not fully funded.
Donations received on this page will support the ongoing costs of the Community Recovery program including staff and volunteer training to support individuals experiencing trauma. Donations may also be used to establish long-term services to enable UnitingCare Community to work with communities to be resilient, respond immediately to severe weather events and be there when the winds die down or the storm has ended.
Every dollar you donate is used most efficiently to help the maximum amount of people who are in crisis. On behalf of everyone who benefits from your kindness, we thank you for your support.
