‘We just want to help’ exemplifies how Lions Clubs, Rotary Clubs and Neighbourhood Houses can offer assistance before, during and after disasters. This thesis provides a first-time analysis of the actions and strengths that nonprofit organisations can deliver in times of crises; as well as identifying barriers and suggesting enablers to action. The embeddedness of nonprofit organisations’ local knowledge and connections offers enormous capacity to strengthen and build community resilience to disasters. Importantly, with increasing evidence of climate change intensifying disaster events around the world, this research emphasises how nonprofit organisations can help in the disaster space.
