Therapists and Students from all Professional Associations and Colleges around Victoria are united and working together to offer support and care for the firefighters, volunteers and survivors of the Victorian bush fires.

Therapeutic Emergency Response Groups are needed and locations and contacts for many of the sites affected are being organised. All natural therapists are invited to donate their time and skills to support those involved, and are required to organize their own transport* and take all equipment they need. 

Endeavour College of Natural Health is acting as the coordinator, liaising closely with the CFA and volunteers at the various locations providing the latest information for therapists interested to help. This will be updated regularly.

For the latest information of coordinator contacts and sites needing help please go to or contact

*in some cases transport can be arranged with other volunteering
