City of Hobart Consultancy Opportunity — Laying the Foundations of Resilience: A Community Self-Assessment Pilot

19 July 2019 12:00 am Australia/Hobart

    During the May 2018 flood event, South Hobart, New Town, Lenah Valley, and Sandy Bay were particularly affected within the Hobart municipality, and individuals, groups, and institutions are still recovering from the damage caused.

    This pilot project invites the formation of a voluntary working group in each of the four suburbs to critically assess the resilience of their own suburb and identify areas in need of further attention, using the Torrens Resilience Institute Community Disaster and Resilience Scorecard Toolkit (“the Scorecard”).

    Are you interested in helping your community be prepared, respond, and recover more effectively in the event of an emergency?

    City of Hobart are now recruiting volunteers to form working groups in each of South Hobart, New Town, Lenah Valley, and Sandy Bay

    You are invited to express interest to be part of a voluntary working group of 10-12 people that will assess your suburb’s resilience in the face of a natural disaster or emergency.

    Find out more or make a EOI.

    Applications close Friday 19 July. If you would like to discuss anything further or ask any questions, please contact Boshra Yazahmeidi on 03 6238 2495 or
