1. DO YOUR RESEARCH: Joining already existing organisations that need extra volunteer support means a coordinated community response.
  2. REACH OUT TO NEIGHBOURS: Talking to and supporting your neighbours builds resilience within your community both during and after an emergency.
  3. SHARE YOUR RESOURCES: If you have more than what you need, consider donating spare to food banks or community pantries.
  4. STAY INFORMED AND BE SAFE: Keep informed from official resources only to ensure best practice and how to keep safe while supporting the community.
