Neighbourhood Centre Disaster Resilience Strategy Project

Neighbourhood Centres are playing a crucial role across the state in responding to natural disasters using community-led initiatives.  The Queensland Families and Communities Association is developing a Queensland-wide Disaster Resilience Strategy with the Neighbourhood Centre sector by researching, analysing and using participatory methods to further develop and enhance this work. The Strategy will comprise of three distinct sub-strategies focused on drought, monsoon and bushfire. These strategies will be used as research and strategy frameworks for their respective regions while being aggregated into a Queensland-wide strategy for Neighbourhood Centres across the state. Details about the three project phases can be found below:
