Assistance to victims of the Queensland floods

In Australia we have all been devastated by the flooding across our country (and the fires in Western Australia). If you have money to spare, please give generously at the Queensland Government site. If you can volunteer – and we will all need volunteers for some time to come, go to the Emergency Volunteering site. You can help pets and animals or provide a bed.

If you are a Government providing web services about the floods

If you are a Government department, agency or charity (QLD, NSW or Victoria) providing web services about the flooding, then I can provide accessibility testing of the relevant flood-related pages or web sites, free-of-charge.
