‘One Stop Shop’ for drought support coming to Wallangarra and Stanthorpe

February 3, 2022

Maranoa MP David Littleproud is encouraging rural residents to find out what support is available to them at Community Outreach Events coming soon to Wallangarra and Stanthorpe.

Organised and funded by the Federal Government’s National Recovery and Resilience Agency, and in partnership with Rotary Australia, the Community Outreach Program is designed to provide support and advice to farmers and farm workers.

Mr Littleproud said the events at Stanthorpe and Wallangarra will deliver a ‘one stop shop’ for support services and information.

“These events are a great opportunity for farmers, families and community members to catch up with friends and neighbours and find out what support is available,” he said.

“The aim is to ensure our communities are given the right information, advice and options to prepare and recover from drought, flood and bushfire now and into the future.”

Rotary will also be distributing $500 vouchers to drought-affected households and conducting community well-being activities.

The National Recovery and Resilience Agency works hand-in-hand with communities, all levels of government, charities and agricultural organisations to support farmers and rural and regional Australians living through the immediate and longer-term effects of bushfire, drought and flood.
