How Good360 is helping
Good360 is the trusted approach for disaster response and recovery. During periods of flooding and storms businesses, charities and communities trust Good360’s proven approach to ensure the right goods get to the right people at the right time. A deluge of rain over a sustained period can mean that people need to evacuate their homes and livestock and pets are left stranded. Good360 is there at the early stages with clean-up goods including, mops, buckets, and brooms and then throughout the long term, with homewares and furniture to help rebuild lives and homes.
AbSec partnered with Good360 and their donors, BIG W, creating a package that contained LEGO sets, coloured pencils and children’s clothes to help ease the strain on Aboriginal families uprooted by the floods.
Good360 understands the lifecycle of a disaster is a marathon, not a sprint and we focus on a six-phase disaster recovery framework for giving funds, goods and volunteer time during disasters: Readiness, Response, Recover, Rebuild, Refurnish and Revive. These six stages help businesses and everyday Australians understand where the need lies at any given time throughout a disaster’s lifecycle.
We know it is natural to want to rush in and offer assistance when the disaster strikes but we have years of experience helping partners pledge their support over the length of the disaster and this is essential to the community organisations on the ground so they know donations will continue for the many months and years it takes to recover, unfortunately, the research shows too much is donated in the first few weeks – we want to help change this.
