Who we are

The Crisis App was born during the bushfires from a desire to better connect the generosity of everyday Australians who wanted to help with people who needed help.

We are a team of volunteers crowdsourcing resources, and matching requests and offers of help. We are a way for people to help people in times of national crises.

How it works

You can help or get help in two ways:

1) Add to our directory or search our web app which provides live, up-to-date information and resources in crises.
2) Submit your request or offer of help and we can match you up!
