Emergency Recovery - Resources for the Sector
Resilience Through Disasters Report, LCSA - 2020 - In 2019 and 2020, communities and community-based organisations across New South Wales faced significant challenges, from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, to the 2019-2020 bushfire season, flooding, and drought. Neighbourhood and community centres have been at the forefront of disaster preparedness and response. This includes members of LCSA. In August 2020, LCSA and WESTIR Limited distributed an online survey to LCSA members across NSW with the aim of recording perceptions of the roles, responses, and resilience of these organisations through times of crisis. This report analyses the survey responses and proposes several recommendations to help neighbourhood and community centres better prepare for, respond to, and bounce back from disasters in NSW.
