Towards the end of February and through to early March this year, South East Queensland, Wide Bay-Burnett, and parts of New South Wales experienced one of the worst flood disasters in Australian history, resulting in an estimate of $2.5 billion of damage with 20,000 houses destroyed in Brisbane alone. In response Form1 launched the Form1 Flood Appeal and sought donations for families and businesses affected by the NSW Floods. A huge thanks to all our partners, clients, customers and teams who donated much-needed goods at this time. In June, following the appeal, Form1 Human Resources Manager, Christian Ure, joined David Rugendyke from the Convoy Commune Cafe in Newcastle to visit The Woodburn Recovery Hub. On the ground our team hand-delivered all the items donated to the Form1 Flood Relief Appeal. You can read more about their journey here. TRADE SUPPORT FOR NSW FLOOD In September, 2022, Form1 Fire Electrician Daniel Schepis continued the work, leading a group of volunteers back to Woodburn to provide much needed trade support to those in need. Daniel was devastated and shocked by the state some people were still living in, up to seven months after the floods. Read more about Daniel’s experience on the Form1 blog. Form1 will continue to support those in need through our NSW Flood Appeal. If you, or someone you know, would like to help or offer your own trade services on future Form1 trips, please email HR There is guidance on the range of grants and payments available to people impacted by severe weather and flooding in NSW in 2022.
