ACOSS Resilient Community Organisations Online Resources

The Natural Disaster Resilient Community Organisations Project and the one-day workshops are based on a suite of online resources developed by the Australian Council of Social Service.

The online resources can be accessed here. They contain a Benchmarking Tool to enable community organisations to work out how prepared they are and what they need to work on to be more resilient in the case of a natural disaster. They also contain tools which help to build resilience through use of the '6 Steps to Resilience' Toolkit.

This resource from Good Shepherd Microfinance has excellent tips for individuals to protect their finances in the event of disaster. Funded by the Queensland Government, the resource is full of Queensland-specific references and links, but it has lots of useful information, tips and hints that anyone can use so we have included it here.
