Government support for people directly affected by flood

Over the last 12 months Australians have endured a series of devastating flooding events. Many lives and business have been impacted and suffered great damage; the clean-up and recovery process will take time. If you or a loved one has been directly affected by a recent flood you may be eligible for financial assistance through Services Australia.

To find out if you are eligible for support visit Natural disaster events - Natural disaster - Services Australia. There you will find information on how to access financial relief, social services and other government programs.    

Any veterans or family members of veterans who are struggling with their mental health as a result of the floods, please remember free counselling support is always available, 24/7 through Open Arms – Veterans and Families Counselling on 1800 011 046.
