The Recovery Partners Network (RPN) was formed in 2017 and is facilitated by the Office of Security and Emergency Management. The purpose of the RPN is to bring together non-government and community organisations and Tasmanian Government agencies to build networks and relationships that enable collaborative and coordinated recovery efforts during and after emergencies.
The RPN meet at an annual forum where all members are invited to attend to share learnings from previous recovery efforts and understand what work is being done going forward in the Tasmanian disaster recovery space in order to improve outcomes for Tasmanian communities.
If you are an organisation that works in disaster recovery, and would like to join the RPN, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Working Together in Recovery: a practical guide for the not-for-profit and public sectors
At the 2019 RPN Forum, Dr Steve Curnin, Director of the Disaster Resilience Research Group at the University of Tasmania launched a research project funded by the Tasmanian State Emergency Management Program. Taken from insights provided by people involved in the 2016 floods, Dr Curnin has created a practical and simple guide that provides advice for the not-for-profit and public sectors on how to enhance collaboration during the recovery phase of a disaster in Tasmania.
A PDF version of the guide is available in the link: Working Together in Recovery

The Tasmanian Government helps individuals and communities recover from natural disasters with financial support through the Tasmanian Relief and Recovery Arrangements (TRRA). The type of help available depends on the impacts of a natural disaster. The Office of Security and Emergency Management manages whole-of-government processes to support the TRRA.
The Tasmanian Government also provides financial support to councils in joint cost sharing arrangements. The Office of Security and Emergency Management administers natural disaster financial assistance to councils.
