Resilient Australia Awards The Resilient Australia Awards is a national program celebrating and promoting initiatives that build whole-of-community resilience to disasters and emergencies around Australia. Now in its twenty-third year, the awards program recognises a wide range of initiatives centred on risk assessment and mitigation, mental health and wellbeing, education, training and research, and community engagement, as well as response and recovery. This year the program will be celebrating projects from New South Wales in four categories: community, mental health & wellbeing, local government and photography.
NSW Get Ready Community Award Launched in 2015 by the NSW Government, the NSW Get Ready Community Award celebrates community-led initiative that help people prepare for and recover from disasters. This award recognises and acknowledges the grass roots efforts of community members in building disaster resilience through partnerships and collaboration across the community. The awards align with the Get Ready NSW Program with a focus on community-led resilience building initiatives across the state.
