In recent years, NSW communities have faced multiple challenges from drought, bushfire, flood to pandemic. Local social service NGOs have been at the forefront, providing support during these crises while maintaining core services to communities.
Local social service NGOs are highly experienced at supporting vulnerable population groups and bring specialist knowledge and skills to the task. They are also ‘on the ground’ and agile in scaling up to respond to broader community need in times of emergency.
