Disaster Relief Australia will help people rebuild their lives.

But we can’t do it alone.

We need your help!

VIC-NSW-TAS Flood Appeal 1

Donate to the flood recovery efforts

As the floods intensify across the country and more rivers break their banks, over 10,000 people have been ordered to evacuate their homes. Many are being told it’s too late to leave.  With more rain expected over the coming days, it is inevitable that thousands more homes will be inundated and tens of thousands will be affected by flood waters. Many are cut off in their communities in the middle of the rising waters.

The impact is and will be devastating.

 Rising flood waters and flash flooding have once again devastated Australian communities. Many people are in evacuation centres and emergency accommodation. The floods have destroyed lives and ripped families apart.  

The crisis is far from over. For so many it has just begun.

They need help. Your help.

*These funds will not be used to support the SponVol operation or any other operation the Victorian Government is contracting Disaster Relief Australia to run*


Once the waters subside and the media attention shifts, the community is left alone to pick up the pieces. This is when Disaster Relief Australia volunteers come into the community to undertake the back breaking work that so many need help with.

A week, month, years later, our volunteers are there continuing to assist to keep the community safe and get residents back into their homes.

We need your help!

There is a long road to recovery for thousands of people.

Your generous support today will assist Disaster Relief Australia to put teams of volunteers on the ground to assist in the clean up through these incredibly challenging conditions. Flood recovery is hard, dirty work. We roll up our sleeves, cleaning out mud, assist with fence line removal, do chainsaw work on dangerous trees, remove rubbish and damaged treasured items and debris brought about by the floods.

Disaster Relief Australia is there to help people rebuild their lives. But we can’t do it alone.

We need your help!

Disaster Relief Australia needs your donation to provide our volunteer recovery teams with the supplies and support they need to get as many people as possible on the ground to help in the clean-up. The more funds we raise, the more assistance we can provide to Australians whose lives have been turned into chaos.

What happens if Disaster Relief Australia raises more than you need for this disaster?
If the funds exceed the cost of our recovery operation, the excess will be used to restock and repair our equipment so we are ready for the next occurrence. Unfortunately disasters are becoming more frequent and intense. Extra funds allows us to be ready to pack our bags and deploy.
I’m affected by the current floods. Does Disaster Relief Australia offer financial support to individuals?

Disaster Relief Australia does not provide financial assistance. Disaster Relief Australia provides disaster recovery services. Disaster Assist Australia contains a map to search to find the Local Government Areas which have been declared natural disasters. People in those areas can then apply for disaster recovery payments. The page is updated as each State and Territory makes natural disaster declarations. This information can be found at Disaster Assist.

Does Disaster Relief Australia take individual requests for assistance?
No, Disaster Relief Australia does not take individual requests for assistance. We work with the official local agencies on the ground and receive information about requests for assistance through them. Please contact your local council for more information.
