Ten years of DWCS


The Downs & West Community Support (DWCS) was established on 1 May 2007 as a DROUGHT APPEAL, when Queensland in Australia, was experiencing the worst drought in 100 years.

Over the next 12 months, the drought got worse and people in rural and remote areas of Queensland struggled to survive financially, emotionally, socially and physically.

The DWCS Advisory Committee realised that the appeal needed to come to a close to make way for an extension of the programme. This enabled us to respond to many more people who were isolated and failed to receive financial support from the Government.
