Disaster Relief Australia is responding to the QLD/NSW floods. 


You can help in two equally important ways.
Donate & Volunteer.
Find out what’s involved.

Help the Queensland and New South Wales Floods 1

Donate to the QLD/NSW Floods

Donations will go directly towards getting our disaster relief teams on the ground in Queensland and New South Wales. Your support will assist cleaning up the devastation for those most in need.

Your donation dollar does double time. Not only will you help communities devastated by disaster, you also support Australian Veterans to find purpose through service. Your generosity in supporting Disaster Relief Australia will aid us to provide real hands on help where it is needed most. 

Volunteer to Help the Flood Recovery Effort

We welcome all to volunteer with us. If you want to help the Queensland and New South Wales floods, register your interest below. Our team will update you on the next steps. You can help as little or as much as you are able. You will work alongside DRA members experienced in disaster recovery work.

Already a Disaster Relief Australia Member?

We need your experience and know-how to help guide the large scale flood recovery effort. Let the mobilisation team know by email of your availability. Get your boots on the ground to help and show new volunteers how it’s done.


Who are Disaster Relief Australia?

Disaster Relief Australia (DRA) unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams in Australia and around the world. DRA is a not for profit organisation offering veterans a chance to continue their service by helping and empowering those afflicted by disasters, and also themselves. Programs and services are made possible by the support of individual donors, corporate partners, and the dedication of volunteers across the country.

When will volunteers and DRA members be required to deploy?

Disaster Relief Australia is actively planning a flood recovery response. The response will occur once emergency services have completed their work and flood recovery operations are able to commence. Further information about the dates will be made available soon.

What work will volunteers do?

Flood cleanup work is dirty. Volunteers will need to roll up their sleeves, get dirty and provide real hands on help where it’s needed most. Flood recovery includes mucking out mud, removing lots of rubbish and debris, clearing access to properties, chainsaw work and fence line removal.


Do I need to be a veteran to volunteer with Disaster Relief Australia?

You do not need to be a veteran to volunteer with Disaster Relief Australia. Many of our members are from a military or emergency services background but we also have many motivated volunteers from many walks of life and professions.


I cannot volunteer, how can I help?

You can help our efforts by donating or sharing our message to others. Find out how you can donate.
