Stronger For The Storm

A team from Newcastle University and the SES are conducting a “Stronger For The Storm” project to enable communities that were greatly affected by the devastating storms in April 2015 to share their stories.  Hunter Mobile Preschool was closed for a week due to the damage from this storm and we could not visit one of venues for weeks as they were cut off by flood waters. We had it easy – so many others suffered great losses and terrible, frightening conditions. If you live in one of the areas the team are investigating and would like to take part in their post disaster research, please use the information on the flyer below to contact them.
