Launch of Tasmania's Emergency Volunteering Program

Like so many disasters around Australia, the Tasmanian bushfires in 2013 highlighted the goodwill of the community. People across the state and the country, put their hands up to help.

The challenge is knowing what affected communities need, and channelling goodwill in a way that’s safe, coordinated and effective.

Volunteering Tasmania is thrilled to implement Emergency Volunteering CREW (Community Response to Extreme Weather). The custom-made volunteer management system has been tried and tested over many years by Volunteering Queensland. EV CREW matches volunteers’ skills, availability and location, with the needs of organisations delivering recovery activities after an emergency. 

Register today and we’ll whistle you in if and when your help is needed.

Our thanks for your interest and generosity!
