BlazeAid is accepting volunteers again, with some restrictions and requirements.
People with trade qualifications or people that have a vehicle that can be used to transport teams out to farms - we will help with rego, insurance and fuel etc will be given priority.
Good news for backpackers who can’t find work but are paying rent and for food, we can provide free accommodation and meals. Bonus if you are on a Working Holiday Visa (subclass 417) or Work & Holiday Visa (subclass 462), you can come and volunteer with BlazeAid in a bushfire affected area, such as Bombala, which will count as ‘specified work’ towards eligibility for a second or third year WHM visa.
Bombala is located about 2 ½ from Canberra. We are located at the Bombala Show Grounds were we have space for camper vans, tents and swags in our hall.
We will provide three meals per day; we will transport you out to local farms to work on re-fencing and property clearing, all training provided, so a fantastic way of making new friends and becoming absorbed in a local community.
Postcode: 2632 (Bombala, New South Wales)

BlazeAid is a volunteer-based organisation that works with families and individuals in rural Australia after natural disasters such as fires and floods. Working alongside the rural families, our volunteers help to rebuild fences and other structures that have been damaged or destroyed.
Equally important, volunteers also help to lift the spirits of people who are often facing their second or third flood event after years of drought, or devastating losses through bushfires. BlazeAid volunteers work in a disaster-affected area for many months, not only helping individuals and families, but also helping rebuild the local communities.
