Flood recovery: How you can help or find help

We are sending our thoughts to everyone affected by these floods, not just within the Sunshine Coast region, but also to all those in other local government areas that have been impacted.

HOW TO HELP

Volunteer: Anyone interested in volunteering can register their interest at www.volunteeringsunshinecoast.org.au and click on ‘Become a Volunteer’.

Donate: If community members would like to donate to those in need, please visit www.givit.org.au.

GIVIT in partnership with the Queensland Government is managing donations during recovery, to help the people and communities impacted by recent flooding to give what’s needed when it’s needed. Donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Reach out and check on your neighbours – Visit Council’s website for resources.

NEED HELP? We are working with to coordinate support for those who need support. If you need support to remove flood damaged goods please: Email Customer.Service@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au or text 0456 316 306 (note this number is text only, no calls).

Please provide your name, contact number and address and you will be contacted about your request.

Financial Support – There are a number of grants available for those affected by the rain event. Visit Council’s website.

The Australian Red Cross has a range of resources to support communities following disasters, visit their website for resources to help with your recovery.

You can also connect with Lifeline (Uniting Care), Salvation Army and St Vincent de Paul.

WASTE REMINDER – TIP FEES WAIVED: Until close of business Sunday March 13, 2022 we are offering free general and food waste disposal to residents impacted by flooding.

GARDEN WASTE: Unfortunately our garden waste storage areas are full and we are unable to receive large volumes of garden waste at this time.

We are doing our utmost to receive greater volumes and thank you for your patience. We’ll keep our community updated and let you know when we can accept green waste.

In the short-term please store garden waste on your property until we decrease the current stocks at our transfer stations.
