NSW Bush Fires - How you can help

As bushfires continue to devastate New South Wales many people have reached out to ask how they can lend a hand to people in bush fire affected areas, as well as our volunteers.

There are a number of ways you can help.

The best way is to donate money. This allows people to buy the things they need, and it supports local businesses which have also been impacted.

We know many people want to donate physical items such as food and clothing but these take up much needed community space.

SUPPORTING OUR VOLUNTEERS

Many people are choosing to show support to our volunteers. While brigades are provided equipment to protect the community, donations assist them deliver additional services to the community.
