This week marks the 5th anniversary of the devastating Queensland Floods of 2010-11. During this time, we remember so many amazing, caring people who voluntarily helped those affected. The outpouring of community spirit and the desire of people to help each other during the massive clean-up was overwhelming!

Volunteering Queensland is proud to release two new tools to help older people ensure their safety and wellbeing at times of disasters.

The ‘Disaster Preparedness for Older People’ project is funded from the Natural Disaster Resilience Program (NDRP), administered through the Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning.
