Floods 2022

Donations and volunteering

Response and recovery volunteer expression of interest

The Seymour region flood event in October 2022 has seen the best in our community as people search for a way to help their neighbours and support the community on the road ahead.

Many people would like to put their hand up for opportunities to volunteer in supporting both the flood response and the recovery phase we'll see next.

Mitchell Shire Council is currently recording the details of those who have expressed interest in joining these efforts. These details will be shared with non-profit and community group organisations who have volunteer opportunities available.

GIVIT donations

Online donation platform GIVIT is calling for donations of items, services and funds for people impacted by the floods across Victoria, as part of the GIVIT Storms and Flooding Appeal. All donated funds go directly to affected communities.

  • If you are a local charity or frontline service in need of donated goods and services, please register on GIVIT registrations.
  • If you have an item to donate that is not listed, please register the item on GIVIT donate items.

GIVIT is working on this initiative in partnership with the Victorian Government.

Further volunteering opportunities

For volunteering, please refer to agencies including Red Cross and Salvation Army.

Please be aware that we are not encouraging people to travel to the area due to hazardous conditions, road closures and emergency operations.

We understand people want to donate during this difficult time, and we appreciate this, but uncoordinated donations can hamper services on the ground.

As this is an evolving situation, we will provide further detail as soon as possible.
