Blue Mountains businesses are stronger together.

Blue Mountains Business Community Resilience Project

The 2019-20 bushfires and the Covid-19 pandemic heavily impacted Blue Mountains tourism and trade. These events also revealed big gaps in business community preparedness across the region. 

Business owners, operators and employees need to build their capabilities in disaster preparedness, self-sufficiency and resilience.

One of the best ways to do this is to get businesses working together and sharing their knowledge to ensure better outcomes for them and their communities.

Getting your business ahead of future disasters

Keeping businesses in business

The Blue Mountains Business Community Resilience Project is a free two-year program focused on building preparedness, resilience and wellbeing. 

Central to the project is the creation of a new free business and community hub that will prepare Blue Mountains businesses for disasters by making them more resilient and self-sufficient. The hub will provide a central online and offline space where Blue Mountains business leaders, owners and operators can connect and collaborate, and more importantly learn from and support each other.

We want all businesses in the Blue Mountains local government area, big and small,  to get involved. You can register here for updates.

Our team has local knowledge and experience building disaster preparedness and resilience in communities. They will help you, your business and your local community to learn from and prepare for major disruptions so that when something catastrophic does happen, communities can more easily rebound from disasters.
