Mogo bushfire recovery outreach

Mogo bushfire recovery outreach

Bushfire recovery agencies are trialling a drop-in service in Mogo on Thursdays to help support the community and surrounding area.

The sessions follow requests from Mogo community leaders. Eurobodalla Council’s Bushfire Recovery Support Service coordinator Jane Robertson said anyone who was impacted by the Black Summer bushfires could drop in to the Boomerang Meeting Place, between 10am and 2pm, for the next two Thursdays and discuss their situation confidentially.

New and existing clients are welcome.

“When individuals impacted by the fires contact us, they are assigned a case management officer, who can help them with making decisions and exploring housing options, applying for financial and other support from charities, clean-ups, and the many other issues to deal with in their recovery,” she said.

“We also provide emotional support and referral to specialised trauma counselling and other services.”

In addition to the Eurobodalla Bushfire Recovery Support Service, Service NSW staff will also attend to provide assistance on state government matters.

The bushfire recovery support Mogo pop-up will be held at the Boomerang Meeting Place, from 10am-2pm on Thursday 21 January and Thursday 28 January. On Thursday 4 February the pop-up service will co-locate with the Salvos’ mobile office visit to the Mogo RFS Shed.

For more information contact the Eurobodalla Bushfire Recovery Support Service on 4474 7434 or email recovery@esc.nsw.gov.au . Residents can also pop in to the recovery office at 46 Vulcan St, Moruya.

Eurobodalla Bushfire Recovery Support Service is run by Eurobodalla Council, and one of seven recovery support services jointly funded by the NSW and Australian governments, supporting the communities most severely impacted by the 2019/20 bushfires.
