Community Recovery Officers are working to support bushfire-affected communities in their recovery journey. NSW Community Recovery Officers are working in 22 bushfire-affected local government areas in NSW to support communities throughout their recovery journey. The officers are imbedded in councils and are responsible for the development of a range of recovery initiatives alongside community groups and stakeholders. Community Recovery Officers ensure community recovery needs are understood and that recovery information, events and activities can be tailored to meet local needs. 

Community Recovery Officers are working with councils to:

  • Connect community organisations that are assisting with recovery
  • Support local coordination between public, private, and community sector bodie
  • Facilitate community recovery events
  • Facilitate access to recovery information
  • Undertake recovery planning and actions based on local context and needs
