Welcome to BlazeAid  –  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.

BlazeAid volunteers:
Not just rebuilding fences, but helping rebuild lives.

“We asked you to come help us rebuild our fences but you guys have done way more than that, you have helped us rebuild our broken community.  For that we are forever grateful to you and all the amazing volunteers.”
Maree Perkins, Monto, Qld, 2013 Floods.

 PUBLIC BENEVOLENT INSTITUTION

BlazeAid is now a registered charity with PBI status. 

A Public Benevolent Institution (PBI) is a type of charity which has a predominant (main) purpose of relieving needs arising from conditions such as poverty, sickness, distress or helplessness. This is known as providing ‘benevolent relief’.

PBI status is recognised by ACNC and ATO alike and BlazeAid can now provide its donors with tax deductible receipts.  This is a very welcome annoucement and BlazeAid looks forward to being able to provide DGR (Deductible Gift Recipient) to its donors.

Overview Statistics 2009 – 2016

These figures show the amazing amount of work done by our volunteers. However, they don’t reflect the humanitarian impact our volunteers have on the local communities. The help and hope that BlazeAid brings to rural families after natural disasters can’t be quantified, but is even more important than the fencing and other work completed.

Ian “Macca” McNamara is the Patron of BlazeAid. We thank him for his wonderful support in helping BlazeAid find volunteers to help with our fence rebuilding. ABC radio and TV have been invaluable in their support of BlazeAid since its inception in 2009. Hundreds of our volunteers have heard about BlazeAid through the ABC, especially on Macca s Australia All Over. We look forward to a long ongoing relationship with the ABC, especially with Macca on Sunday mornings.
