NAB Ready Together
As Australians face more frequent natural disasters, there’s a growing need to help communities become more resilient.
We’re playing our part through NAB Ready Together, opens in new window. This NAB and NAB Foundation flagship program helps Australians withstand and recover from natural disasters. When you’re threatened by bushfires, floods or cyclones, we'll be there.
Whatever comes, we’re ready together.
“Forecasts indicate these disasters are only going to come more often. As a bank that’s here to serve customers well and help our communities prosper, we must help.”
Ross McEwan, CEO
Disaster relief partnerships proudly supported by NAB Foundation
It takes many hands to get communities back up and running after a disaster. That’s why NAB and NAB Foundation is partnering with disaster relief organisations to help communities recover faster.
Disaster Relief Australia
Disaster Relief Australia, opens in new window (DRA) responds quickly to large-scale disasters, rapidly deploying disaster relief teams in Australia and around the world in the wake of disasters. With over 3,000 volunteers and Disaster Relief Teams across Australia, DRA uses the skills and experiences of military veterans, first responders and motivated civilians to help communities impacted by disaster on the road to recovery. NAB Foundation is partnering with Disaster Relief Australia to bolster the organisation’s community and corporate volunteer capacity. The partnership will assist DRA to recruit and manage everyday Australians who want to help communities.
