The Salvation Army's Mobile Bushfire Disaster Recovery team will be at the Kurrajong Bowling Club car park, from 9am to 4pm on Tuesday, March 16.

The Salvos team will be providing information and support to residents, including financial counselling and some new grants.

Residents who qualify may be eligible for a variety of grants, including a hardship grant, total loss grant, or household goods grant.

Chaplaincy and Salvation Army outreach services will also be available.

"This is a great opportunity to get practical, free and confidential advice," said Salvos Bushfire Recovery project officer Ja Davis.

"It's been 12 months since last year's devastating bushfire disaster, but we know that many people are still experiencing hardship.

"If you're struggling, whether it is financially, mentally or spiritually, please come along, we're here to help."
