Minister for Emergency Services and Resilience and Minister for Flood Recovery Steph Cooke said Recovery Centres provide individuals, families, farmers and business owners easy access to a range of Government support, services and advice.

“We now have 14 Recovery Centres and assistance points in the Northern Rivers, four in the Hawkesbury-Nepean Valley, three on the Central Coast, two on the South Coast, two in the Hunter region and one in the Southern Highlands,” Ms Cooke said.

“Each Recovery Centre is operated by Resilience NSW staff and bring together a range of NSW Government agencies, community organisations and service providers under one roof.

“The trauma our flood-affected communities right across the State continue to suffer is immense. This is why we are doing everything possible to help residents kickstart their recovery journey.”

Recovery Centres and assistance points provide access to accommodation, lost document replacements, mental health and wellbeing services, business support, clean-up services, financial assistance, and insurance and legal support.
