DR:FR NSW Roadshow communities

Thanks to support from our donor partners, including the NSW Government’s Get Ready NSW initiative, the project started in New South Wales. The first three pilot communities to participate in the program were Ocean Shores, Wee Waa and North Richmond.

FRRR worked with these communities to identify what projects needed to take place to help them withstand and recover from any future disaster.

Below you can read more about each community, and how they are approaching becoming disaster resilient and future ready.

This program is near completion. Participating community groups are currently completing initiatives and preparing final reports on impact and outcomes in their communities.

FRRR commissioned a formal evaluation by the University of Sydney. You can read the Summary Research Report here and read updates on the projects in each community below.
