Two pop-up Recovery Centres will open to flood-affected communities on the Central Coast today.
Nationals Minister for Emergency Services and Resilience and Minister for Flood Recovery Steph Cooke said the Recovery Centres, located at Spencer and The Entrance, would assist communities transition from response into clean-up and recovery.
“Recovering after a flood event is an extremely emotional time and for many people, it’s difficult to know where to even begin,” Ms Cooke said.
“Whether it’s replacing damaged documents, receiving clean-up help, obtaining emergency accommodation or accessing mental health services, I encourage everyone in our flood-affected communities to visit a nearby Recovery Centre and access this multi-agency support.”
