NSW Floods Appeal

Help provide humanitarian support to people affected by the NSW Floods

Helping people is what we do. Your generosity makes that possible. 

Several days of record breaking rain across the New South Wales coast has caused severe flooding, affecting 86,000 people. Two people have died, and tens of thousands have been forced to evacuate. Homes and livelihoods have been lost, and more than 1,041 people had to be rescued from floodwaters by NSW SES.

Communities have been completely cut off due to flood waters and landslides, and although weather conditions have eased there are still major flood warnings and evacuation orders in place for several areas across the State.

In the days and weeks ahead thousands of families will have to begin the long and difficult process of cleaning up, and communities will need long-term support to recover from this disaster.

Your donation will enable Australian Red Cross to provide humanitarian support to people and communities in New South Wales affected by the 2021 floods.

Based on ongoing needs assessment and amount raised, this support may include:

  • disaster relief including practical and financial assistance
  • supporting people and communities to recover and to build resilience to disasters

About the NSW Floods Appeal 2021

Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible in Australia. You will receive a receipt in your name in an email when you donate online.

Australian Red Cross will not deduct more than 10 per cent of money raised to cover indirect essential costs such as collecting and administrating donations, IT costs and overheads.

Should the funds raised exceed the cost of our emergency services, the excess will be used to support our everyday work with the most vulnerable people in Australia.

Thousands of generous people gave in response to the Black Summer bushfires. Perhaps you were one of them and already know how grateful we are.

Donations to the Disaster Response and Recovery fund before July 2019 have been supporting our response to the Australian Bushfires 2019/20. They are helping people affected by those particular fires: as grants that help them cope with financial hardship, repair their homes and re-establish a safe place to live, and through longer-term recovery programs in each community. See your generosity in action.
