There are many ways you can help Queenslanders affected by the 2022 floods.
Donate to registered charities
Registered charities respond to the needs of communities hit by natural disasters. They can supply food, equipment, shelter, and other support where needed.
Charities raising funds to help communities include:
- Australian Red Cross
- Lifeline Queensland
- St Vincent de Paul Society Queensland
- The Salvation Army
Or you can choose a charity of your choice.
The Queensland Government has already contributed $2.1 million—$500,000 each to: the Australian Red Cross; Lifeline Queensland; the Salvation Army; and St Vincent de Paul Society Queensland, and $100,000 to GIVIT, which is in addition to $400,000 already provided in 2021-22.
