Bushfire-impacted residents can seek help and advice about a range of vital services with the opening of a new Recovery Assistance Point in Narooma.
Eurobodalla Council will open the assistance point to extend support for residents in the south of the shire recovering from the bushfire disaster.
Already more than 2,600 households from all over the Eurobodalla have registered at the Recovery Centre in Batemans Bay.
Recovery Assistance Points are a place where people can get access to information, accommodation support, health and wellbeing support, and housing assistance. It is a smaller version of a recovery centre and will have six to 12 key agencies in attendance including health, welfare, charities, government services, business and rural assistance.
The Council says a program of community outreach services will get underway shortly to supplement the Recovery Centre and the new Assistance Point.
Visit the Recovery Assistance Point at:
Narooma Golf Club
1 Ballingalla Street Narooma
Opens Wednesday 12 February at 10am, then 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday
People impacted by bushfires are encouraged to call Service NSW on 13 77 88, see a Service NSW team member in a Disaster Recovery Centre, visit a Service NSW Centre or Mobile Service Centre, or go to www.service.nsw.gov.au for assistance.
