All Australians and millions more around the world have been shocked, saddened and concerned at the horrifying bushfires across our country. We have witnessed the devastation and damage they’ve caused, with a number of bcu staff personally impacted, and we will be working closely with affected members to provide support wherever possible.

bcu extends our thoughts and heartfelt sympathies to all those impacted and acknowledge the remarkable work of the emergency services and volunteers who are committed to protecting and assisting the tens of thousands of people affected.

It has been inspiring to see so many local firefighters, other volunteers and wider communities uniting together to respond to the disaster and support one another – a genuine and powerful example of the power of the collective in this difficult and challenging time for so many Australians.

To bcu members wanting to donate to those impacted, please see the below list of organisations working directly at the frontline of this disaster. To ensure funds get to where they are most needed in a timely manner, bcu won’t be taking donations on behalf of members and we encourage contributing directly to one of these organisations.
