Clarke Creek is a small community 2.5 hours south of Mackay and one of the remote and regional communities hardest hit after ex-tropical Cyclone Debbie crossed the Queensland Coast almost two weeks ago. The community of approximately 170 residents has been doing it tough coming to grips with the damage and huge financial costs they face as the clean-up in this community continues. Over the weekend, two counsellors from the Mackay venue travelled with a team of other workers from the Department of Communities and other government agencies to provide support and assistance to the Clarke Creek community. RAQ will continue to provide ongoing counselling support to this community working with the Department’s outreach teams from Mackay, Bowen and Proserpine. As the floodwaters recede in Rockhampton and residents begin the clean-up, RAQ continues to work with the local disaster management committee and provide community response services. Our staff are continuing to provide support to clients who access our services and to the broader community. RAQ sincerely thanks our staff for their commitment to their clients and communities and the contribution they have made during the past two weeks. All our venues are now open as usual including Bowen, Mackay and Rockhampton.
