Emergency Volunteering: Community Response to Extreme Weather (EV CREW)
Volunteering Tasmania is proud to play a key role in connecting volunteers and their skills to people, places and organisations who need it most.
We maintain a database of ‘willing volunteers’, people who want to contribute in some way to help others through a crisis or disaster and we match the right people to volunteer organisations in their area involved in support and recovery.
Volunteering Tasmania is funded by the Tasmanian government to provide an online registration portal for anyone interested in volunteering during and following an emergency incident.
Through this online portal, the EV CREW program can then provide a matching service for those volunteers with suitably certified council/non-profit organisations requiring additional volunteer support in emergencies.
You will be contacted if and when an emergency occurs and your availability, location and skills are needed. But be patient, it might take a while as the needs of the local community are gauged and recovery programs begin.
You will always have the option to accept or decline any volunteering activity we may offer you at any time in the future.
Volunteer Involving Organisations
Does your organisation receive expressions of interest from people wanting to volunteer to help in times of emergency? In emergency situations, your team might not have the capacity to manage enquiries from the public wanting to volunteer. Invite people to register on EV CREW. Their skills, location and availability will be recorded, and they’ll be contacted if and when their help is needed.
When your organisation is ready and you know what help you need, we may be able to source additional volunteers for you.
To register your organisation and volunteer requirements please contact us.
Volunteer Connect is a national volunteer referral system which connects volunteers and organisations. It allows people to search for a new volunteer role and for volunteer-involving organisations to advertise for and recruit new volunteers.
