A range of support services will be available at the drop-in event on Thursday 22 February, including the Department of Communities, Australian Red Cross, the Salvation Army, Disaster Relief Australia, Legal Aid, as well as assistance from the City of Wanneroo.

Mayor Linda Aitken said the bushfire – which burned through 1,900 hectares last November – was now in the recovery phase and the City continued to support those affected.

“After the fire, the City set up a Community Recovery Centre at our Civic Centre and we are now bringing these services and resources out into the heart of the community most affected,” she said.

“Bring a picnic blanket and enjoy a sausage sizzle provided by the Rotary Club Wanneroo while connecting with the community and accessing support and resources all in one location.”
