Bushfire Recovery in Wet Weather

While this rain is very welcome for our region it is yet another challenge for people living in temporary accommodation following our bushfires.

Council and recovery agencies are ready to help anyone who needs assistance in these wet conditions. Emergency accommodation can be coordinated by calling our recovery hotline on 6499 2345 or Service NSW on 13 77 88. Please share this with friends and families who might not be online, people who you think might need this help and information.

 

 

Welcome to Bega Valley Together...

Our aim is to make this place your ‘go to’ for bushfire recovery news, information, support and community.

We face this challenging journey together representing all the experiences of the Bega Valley; and approach each day reflecting on current and future needs and the actions needed for renewal.

Here you will find information and connection with a focus on community-led recovery. Experience tells us that individuals and communities bounce back and become stronger when their communities are assisted, supported and empowered to help each other.

The ideas, needs and projects that come from community-led recovery are as unique as each community and are shaped by the energy and ideas that come forward; supported by government and community organisations.

Bega Valley Together is our commitment to community led recovery; to inform, assist, support and empower residents. Sign up for our newsletter, read the latest news and information, come along to events, put forward ideas, connect with a local group or project – you can do all that right here.
