Community Outreach Events

The National Recovery and Resilience Agency and Rotary Australia will be conducting a series of community outreach events in South Australia in September 2021.

These events will bring together community members and share with them important information about available drought and disaster support and how to access it and provide support to small rural and regional businesses.

Rotary will be distributing $500 vouchers to drought-affected households and conducting community well-being events at each outreach event. The outreach event will provide an opportunity for face-to-face, confidential conversations with farmers and community members suffering the impacts of drought and sharing with them important information about available farm support and how to access it.
