QUEENSLAND NEIGHBOURHOOD CENTRES STRATEGY FOR BUSHFIRE RESILIENCE

Phase 1: Neighbourhood Centre Bushfire Discussions

Representatives of Neighbourhood and Community Centres between Central Queensland and the Sunshine Coast are participating in the development of a Queensland Neighbourhood Centre Strategy for Bushfire Resilience.

The development of this Strategy is an initiative of the Queensland Families and Communities Association (QFCA) to support organisational capacity building of Neighbourhood Centres affected by bushfires. This project is funded by the Queensland Government and Australian Government under a flexible funding grant and is due to be completed and launched in December 2020.

Phase 2: Bushfire Resilience Survey

A survey will be undertaken with Neighbourhood Centres and Stakeholders. The purpose of this survey is to explore and highlight the key roles Neighbourhood and Community Centres play in bushfire resilience to demonstrate their unique functions and approaches in communities.                     

Phase 3: Strategy Publishing and E-Launch: December 2020
