We all want to do something to help those affected by the extreme weather around the state; but right now, Tasmania’s emergency services and trained volunteers are responding.
We urge members of the community who want to volunteer to REGISTER first.
When it’s safe, additional volunteers will be required to support organisations involved in the recovery phase.
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 registered volunteers called Emergency Volunteering Community Response to Extreme Weather (or EV CREW).
EV CREW is where new volunteers may be matched to organisations involved in the disaster recovery.
You skills, location and availability will be recorded and you will be contacted if and when help is needed. It’s an effective, safe and coordinated way to help your community.

We remind new volunteers to be patient, it might take days, weeks or months to assess the needs of local communities and for recovery programs to begin.
Registered volunteers will be communicated with directly.
If you have already registered for EV CREW, please make sure your details and availability is up to date. Similarly, if you are no longer available, please log in and de-register.
