Current Recovery Efforts

The Clarence Valley was one of the areas hardest hit by the 2019-20 bushfires. In our area 168 homes were destroyed and many more were damaged. It is very normal to experience a range of feelings after a fire. The emotional impacts of bushfire can continue long after the fires have passed.

Recovery Centres

A Recovery Centre offers more than just support in applying for financial assistance, it’s also a place where affected people can share their concerns with people who understand what you’re going through.

There’s support for your immediate needs as well as information and advice about all the programs that are available from the government, charities and local support services.

Recovery Centre staff are able help you get application processes started and answer questions about your circumstances.

There’s support for individuals, businesses, farmers and landholders. And ongoing help is available over the phone.

Agencies and services at a centre may include local council, Disaster Welfare, small business, Red Cross, NSW Health, Legal Aid, Fair Trading, Salvation Army, chaplains and insurers.
