Lifeline's Recovery and Resilience (R&R) project provided well-being support to communities that were devastated by the Black Summer bushfires in 2019/2020.

The project was jointly delivered by Lifeline Northern NSW and Lifeline New England North West and covered 10 Local Government Areas right through to early 2024. This project was made possible by funding from the Australian Government.
