Opportunities in Disaster Recovery

Anglicare’s Disaster Recovery program relies on volunteers. By attending a free one day training course you can register to be part of your local team. Volunteers are only called on when our assistance is required in helping to look after disaster victims in an evacuation centre, or other associated activities. Volunteers must be over 18, be reasonably fit and well, prepared to undergo a police check and Working with Children Check, display good common sense and have a heart for helping their community. Around four training courses are offered each year in different parts of the diocese. Reimbursement of travel costs is available for those travelling to attend an out of area training day. Once registered as a Disaster Recovery volunteer subsequent opportunities for attending exercise days or joint training with our Community Partners may become available. There is no cost for training or uniform and resources required when activated. Find out where your closest training opportunity might be scheduled by checking our  website or contacting the Regional Disaster Recovery Coordinator in our Maclean Office on 02 6645 1244.
