Emergency volunteering

  • Emergency Volunteering CREW

    EV CREW works with government and organisations to provide volunteer support for all aspects of disasters. Watch now!

  • Who are Emergency Volunteering CREW?

    CREW stands for Community Response to Extreme Weather – and that’s exactly what it is. Emergency Volunteering (EV CREW) is a volunteer referral service managed by Volunteering Queensland. We operate year-round taking offers of volunteer assistance from everyday Queenslanders, registering and linking them to natural disaster response agencies when help is needed. 

  • What's it like being an emergency volunteer?

    The difference that you can make to a disaster-affected family, community group, business or individual - even years after an extreme weather event - is immeasurable.

    There are roles for everyone, no matter your ability or skillset - plenty of volunteer roles don’t require hands-on clean-up work. By detailing your skills, equipment and availability when registering with Emergency Volunteering CREW, we can link you with opportunities where you are most needed.
