Many homes were damaged and even destroyed during the storm. People were displaced, and are still suffering from lockdown trauma. The delays to rebuilding, fixing, and removing dangerous trees have all taken their toll.
We want to make sure that if there is a service that can help, you have access to it. So we've created a page for these support services so you can easily navigate to them without having to search online for hours.
If there's a service you know of that we don't cover, feel free to email us the details and we'll add them in.
Habitat for Humanity
For help with removal of trees, clean up of debris, and rebuilding of infrastructure, Habitat for Humanity can send in crews to clean up.
There is a short process of means testing then they'll organise the rest.
If you'd like to donate your logs to rescue Logs through this process let them know and they'll work with us to ensure the logs get to our facility so they can be used in projects around the hills.
