The floods have been devastating across our community.

When a flood happens in a community, it can be highly distressing for many people.

A large number of these are children who may have suffered major disruption, losses, or lived through frightening experiences. Many other children have been affected indirectly, through hearing about the floods or knowing someone who has lost their home. These can all be challenging experiences for children and adults.

These information sheets will outline some strategies you can use to help children and others recover from a flood.
