After floods come a helping hand

How did your neighbourhood hold up during the floods? How is it looking for the recovery of this event with clean ups and support for one another?

While this flood has caused widespread damage to our properties, the generosity shown, neighbour to neighbour and among our communities, is the silver lining worth paying attention to.

Glasshouse Country Community Development Worker, Natasha Odgers said: “When roads are cut, power is out and supplies are diminishing, it is the kindness between people who live in the same street or neighbourhood that is often the lifeline.”

Natasha is offering free support to people who would like to explore how to strengthen connections and disaster preparedness in their neighbourhoods.

Community Development workers of the Glasshouse Country Community Development program live in our local area and are part of the Caloundra Community Centre. To talk about opportunities for your neighbourhood, please contact Natasha on 0418 720 515 or email
