About the study

The Community Recovery study is looking at the experiences of people impacted by the 2019-2020 bushfires in Victoria.

The University of Melbourne is partnering with Bushfire Recovery Victoria to ask people how recovery from the fires is going for them and their communities. We think that the findings from this research can contribute to the way disaster recovery support is planned into the future.
