Community Recovery Hubs

Find out updates about the support options available at your local recovery hub.

The community recovery hubs, operated by Bushfire Recovery Victoria, link you to practical support, planning and rebuilding advice, case support and support for non-profits and businesses. 

Hubs in Bairnsdale and Corryong are operated by councils. 

Services at each hub are tailored to respond to the needs identified in the community and are delivered in a way that responds to each location. 

Local recovery services

The recovery hubs offer access to a wide range of recovery support and advice, including:

  • information about available grant opportunities
  • financial counselling
  • legal advice
  • mental health and wellbeing supports
  • rebuilding support services
  • information and guidance about a wide range of topics to support recovery
  • community activities and supports

Community members are welcome to visit their local hub to chat to the friendly team about the support they need. In addition to the Hub Services Coordinator, Wellbeing Officers regularly attend recovery hubs to provide immediate and confidential support onsite.
