Self Recovery App

Community recovery information is now just a click away. The Self Recovery App has been launched to provide access to vital information about disasters and emergencies in Queensland.

The app features vital tips for preparing for disasters and cleaning up after them, including:

  • insurance information
  • personal and family support
  • business support
  • how to volunteer
  • how to donate goods and services
  • how to make a financial contribution.

There are also very useful interactive features. For example, if you are in a disaster-affected area, you can register your interest in receiving assistance from the Queensland Government via a mobile-friendly form.

The app can also access the Queensland Government’s Get Ready website.

The app is part of improvements to community recovery including the use of more sophisticated disaster mapping and clearer eligibility criteria for financial assistance which means help can go more efficiently to those suffering genuine hardship.

To download the Self Recovery App, visit the Apple or Android stores.
