CEO Statement to HD community regarding Safe Practices and Services

Dear HD Community Members,

 As you are aware, there has recently been a number of cases of local community transmission of Covid19. As a service provider delivering much needed care and support to vulnerable members of our community, the safety of our clients and staff remains our priority.  As such HWA are making some slight changes to the way we deliver services.

 Out of an abundance of caution, we delayed the start of our Day Centre Program by 2 weeks. The Day Centre Program is being facilitated via an online platform for at least term 1, to ensure we are doing all we can to protect those most vulnerable.

 We will also be contacting clients prior to home visits to attain whether it is safe to do so and will maintain minimal staffing in our office. Support groups, home visits and NDIS service provision will be delivered via various platforms (online, phone, webchat) or face to face when safe to do so. All staff will wear masks when visiting you or delivering a program or service.

 HWA will continue to follow Government and Health advice and regulations, including vaccination mandates and is well prepared to continue to deliver much needed services should we see widespread community transmission of Covid19. At all times, the safety and wellbeing of our HD community, staff and volunteers remains our highest priority and we will continue to keep you updated as we navigate through the reopening of the WA hard border.

 Stay safe and please choose to be kind.

 Lenni Duffield
Chief Executive Officer
