Disasters are upsetting experiences for everyone involved. The emotional toll that disaster brings can sometimes be even more devastating than the financial strains of damage and loss of home, business or personal property.

Recognise that recovery takes time, and it is okay to ask for help.

Following a disaster, a range of welfare and support services will be made available to affected members of the community, which may include the following:

  • Assistance with minor damage repairs and/or clean up – for members of the community, who have been impacted by the event.
  • Please contact the Douglas LDMG.
  • Visit the Douglas Disaster Dashboard for up to date information and helpful contacts.
