BUSHFIRE RELIEF FOR WRSC MEMBERS
Disaster Relief & Recovery Program
Wildlife Rescue South Coast is now able to provide help for our carers who have been affected by the recent bushfires and extreme heat events.
We are providing immediate financial relief to carers in need, as well as free access to professional counselling services specifically tailored to the needs of wildlife rescue volunteers. For info on the available counselling, read the information below.
Even with all the financial aid in the world we know that many of our carers are finding the events of the last few months overwhelming. It's OK to ask for help from your friends and fellow carers, but sometimes we need something more.
WildTalk offers confidential counselling services through a professional Australian Employee Assistance Program. Wildlife carers are entitled to up to six free sessions per year. For information and to set up a session check out WildTalk HERE.
Financial Aid for our volunteers
Financial aid is available to all Wildlife Rescue South Coast volunteers. This aid is provided as a grant, not a loan. No repayment is necessary. This offer is available to our volunteers for any of the following reasons:
We want to assist our carers to get back on their feet as soon as possible. We aim to provide funds to successful applicants quickly by means of a cash advance so recovery can start without delay. The form below asks questions, so we can process your application faster.
Successful applicants will normally be expected to complete their projects within 3 months of receiving funds. Extensions of time may be available to allow for special circumstances (e.g. larger projects or unavailability of materials etc.).
When available funds for round 1 grants are exhausted, it is likely that a second round will be initiated.
If you have any questions about the grants that you'd like to ask prior to filling out the form below, please email your query to email@example.com
