ABV submitted a statement to the Senate Select Committee on Australia's Disaster Resilience

Australian Business Volunteers submitted a statement to the Senate Select Committee on Australia's Disaster Resilience. The committee aims to investigate the roles of different entities, including the Australian Defence Force, volunteer groups, not-for-profit organisations, and state-based services. Its purpose is to determine the necessary support to improve Australia's resilience and response to natural disasters. 

Our submission is based on our deep experience working in multiple areas affected by natural disasters in New South Wales and Victoria. It stresses the importance of community-led approaches and place-based models in disaster resilience efforts.  

Our recommendations encourage a collaborative approach, bringing together stakeholders such as community leaders, organisations, charities, emergency services, and government agencies. We believe this collaborative effort is essential to avoid working in isolation and to effectively support preparedness and recovery efforts.
