Homelessness Inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction
Being prepared for a disaster can save lives. People experiencing homelessness are more exposed to the risks from disaster events such as floods, cyclones, bushfires, and COVID-19.
To address this issue, Community Recovery has partnered with Queenslanders with Disability Network, Community Services Industry Alliance and The University of Sydney to develop a Person-Centred Emergency Planning (P-CEP) toolkit and educational resources for the emergency sector and other service providers that assist people experiencing homelessness.
The Homelessness and Inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction (HIDRR) project is jointly funded by the Department of Communities, Housing and Digital Economy and the Queensland Resilience and Risk Reduction Fund and is due to be completed in June 2023.
Additional resources will be published as the project evolves.
Several surveys will be undertaken to inform the development of HIDRR resources.
Emergency Preparedness Survey of People Experiencing Homelessness survey.
This survey is open to people experiencing homelessness to understand what people can do for themselves, and what they need help with before, during and after an emergency.
Answers to the survey questions will be used in research to help inform the project team in their development of additional resources as part of the HIDRR project.
