Queenslanders wanting to volunteer to help those affected by the Ravenshoe café explosion are being urged to register their offers of assistance with our Emergency Volunteering (EV) CREW service.
EV CREW is a service provided by our team at Volunteering Queensland, who is working in partnership with Tablelands Regional Council to manage all offers of volunteer assistance.
Through our EV CREW website those wanting to volunteer can register their details, skills, availability, and location, so they can be contacted if their assistance is needed by the groups working directly with those affected.
Tablelands Regional Council Mayor, Rosa Lee Long, said the region has been overwhelmed by generous Queenslanders wanting to lend a helping hand.
“It’s human nature to want to support each other after such a tragic event, and we really value the compassion that so many people have shown by being willing to assist in whatever way they can,”
“The best way for people to help is to register their offer of volunteer assistance with EV CREW,”
“This ensures these generous offers of assistance can be managed efficiently and matched to where they’re most needed. Please be aware that it may take some time for the local community to determine their volunteering needs,”
“Council and front line service providers like the Ravenshoe Community Centre are grateful to be partnering with Volunteering Queensland in managing the outpouring of volunteer offers of assistance,” Mayor Lee Long said.
You can register with the EV CREW service one of three ways:
- Quickly and easily via this website - register here
