January 2011 - Unprecedented Flood Crisis in Australia (Qld, NSW, Vic)

As the immediate emergency response of feeding and housing people affected by floods concludes, The Salvation Army now has staff and centres available to assess people for the following forms of assistance:

  • Immediate small grants to purchase goods to restock food and pantry supplies
  • Replacement of essential goods not covered by insurance.
  • Access to specialised trauma counselling, pastoral care and support
  • Access to financial counselling
  • Salvation Army Flood Response Centres have been established at Brisbane, Toowoomba,
  • Ipswich, Greenslopes, Bundamba, Dalby, Rockhampton, Emerald and Bundaberg.
  • Mobile outreach teams will also work from the centres, providing people with flexible access to support, and reaching out to other flood and cyclone affected areas.

The Salvation Army flood response has been made possible through the generous support of Woolworths and the Australian public to The Salvation Army Flood Appeal, which has now raised over $21 million. “The Salvation Army is incredibly grateful to all who have supported the Appeal, including Woolworths who has shown tremendous corporate leadership,” said head of communications and public relations, Major Glenn Whittaker.

The Salvation Army is committed to remaining in these communities for as long as required.
