Resilient Recovery Strategy

The Resilient Recovery Strategy (the Strategy) aims to build on and complement existing initiatives and work in the sector that will enhance recovery outcomes and build resilience for Victorians. 

The Strategy identifies four strategic actions that promote a shared responsibility approach to emergency management and the importance of recovery planning. They are:

Deliver a people and community centred recovery

A community-centred approach ensures government and those delivering recovery services partner with community and allow people to play a greater role in their recovery.

Strengthen recovery through better emergency management planning

By bringing community into the planning process before an emergency, and drawing on community involvement after an emergency, recovery activities will be able to better reflect community needs and values.

Streamlined and flexible recovery system

Improving operating processes and providing clearer, more-timely resourcing for recovery will ensure recovery services and supports are delivered in a more coordinated and effective way.

Support the recovery workforce

This strategy aims to better connect and enhance existing support and wellbeing programs across the sector to ensure appropriate wellbeing support for all people working in recovery.
