Community Recovery

The Department of Communities, Disabilities Services and Seniors is the functional lead agency for human and social recovery, more commonly known as Community Recovery.  The department works with the local government to provide advice, support and/or additional resources to support the emotional, social and physical wellbeing of people affected by a disaster that assist in building resilience in the community.

To do this, the Department of Communities, Disabilities Services and Seniors work across it's current functional areas — i.e. disability services, community services, seniors — as well as other government agencies and NGOs to identify vulnerable individuals and families and assist them directly following a disaster event.
