Our thoughts are with those that have been affected by the fires.

We encourage everyone to continue to listen to authorities and trusted sources, stay out of harm’s way and, if safe to do so, check in and help your friends, family and neighbours.

Due the dangerous nature of the fires, only trained emergency services volunteers are required to respond at this time.

In the meantime, if you would like to be informed if and when additional volunteer help is required, please register at register.emergencyvolunteering.com.au. This way we will know where to find you when we need you.

Today is a special day. In honour of International Volunteer Managers’ Day (IVMDay) Volunteering Queensland would like to recognise the outstanding efforts of thousands of Volunteer Managers across our state, and the world. IVMDay is the perfect time to highlight the importance of this life-changing profession and thank each and every skilled and talented volunteer management professional for their dedication and inspiring leadership.
