Disaster Assistance

Council, the NSW and Federal Governments have a number of ways to help residents affected by disasters.

The NSW Government’s Service NSW Disaster Assistance Finder allows people to find what type of assistance they may be eligible for based on certain factors which you input.

DROUGHT ASSISTANCE IN THE INVERELL SHIRE

Individuals, families, farms, and communities in Inverell Shire can access a range of national, state and local drought support services.

Initiatives established to help farmers and their families can be found on the Australian Government’s DroughtHub website.

The Drought Psychologist, based in Armidale, offers free support to individuals, couples and families impacted by drought throughout our region. Stress, loss and uncertainty can make it difficult to cope, and talking these things through can often help. Fully confidential discussions can be undertaken by phone, Skype or by a visit to your home or farm.
