Bushfire Recovery Program

Our Bushfire Recovery Program is designed to support the wellbeing and resilience of children affected by the bushfires of 2019/20. It was awarded both the NSW and National Resilient Australia Community Award for service excellence in 2021.

The program has a focus on giving children a voice in the recovery process and has worked with 30 communities and supported some 3,000 children through group programs, individual therapy and capacity building. It recognises that dealing with the trauma of a natural disaster, like a bushfire can set children back for a number of years, so is designed to support children over the long term.
