Community Recovery Toolkit

The Community Recovery Toolkit has been developed to assist local councils and agencies involved in the provision of recovery services following a disaster.

The Toolkit is made up of a series of guidelines that provide information and templates that can be tailored to a recovery operation. The information aims to establish guidelines for recovery management and raise awareness of the likely issues that will arise. Each guideline is designed to be read independently.
