This thesis examines how place-based community organisations can play an effective role in the operationalisation of community disaster resilience. This study has explored the roles delivered by two place-based community organisations during the Brisbane 2011 flood, providing important new knowledge on how their roles were delivered, identifying the influence of the characteristics of community disaster resilience and key elements of social capital, as well as examining learnings from international models of community-led responses.
