Disaster recovery assistance


The Vinnies National Council is responsible for co-ordinating the response of the Society in helping people affected by major disasters, whether in Australia or elsewhere.

Where a disaster occurs within  Australia, the local State, Diocesan, Central or Regional Council provides as much assistance as possible, as soon as possible, from its own resources.  The national role is to harness the resources of the other States and Territories.

Some of the types of disaster Vinnies NSW assists with include:

- Drought

- Bushfire

- Floods

If you need assistance for disaster relief, please call 13 18 12 and select option 2.
