Message about the Fires


Emergency Volunteering

A big heart filled thank you to everyone who has put their hand up to volunteer in response to the current fires.

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

In many areas the threat has not yet passed. We encourage you 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.

If you would like to be informed if and when additional volunteer help is required, please register at This way we will know where to find you when we need you.

General Volunteering

We would also like to let you know about the many other ways you can volunteer to support your community.

You can help in the arts, sports, schools, aged care, social support, conservation or community safety. You can help people experiencing homelessness, support children to learn to read, or advocate for refugees.
