The ongoing health and wellbeing of Mambourin’s community members is of utmost importance to us and so we have carefully considered how to maintain our duty of care in relation to the coronavirus. We have implemented a comprehensive action plan and will continue to keep all community members updated as we enact each stage.
9 September 2020
This week the State Government announced their ‘’roadmap for reopening’’ plan for Metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.
The plan states that disability service providers will remain heavily restricted until at least 26 October 2020.
We can currently provide the following one-to-one services:
- Essential community support (such as grocery shopping, two-hours of exercise within 5 km of your home, attending medical appointments)
- In-home supports
- Online programs
These services will be delivered with strict infection control procedures and social distancing in place.
If you would like to talk to someone about accessing more support, please get in touch on 9731 9200 or by contacting your local hub manager.
While we are all disappointed that we have to stay at home for an extended period, we’ve done this before and we will get through it again. Keeping everyone safe and well remains our top priority. We will keep you updated as the government makes further announcements.
Mambourin Business Solutions
Our Supported Employment and Traineeships will continue to run as usual. These are allowable under the category of work and study that cannot be completed remotely. This means our supported employees can work their regular shifts during the Stay at Home restrictions. Temperature checks and screening questions will apply on arrival to work (see Visitor policy below).
Our SLES program will continue to be delivered online. On-site work experience will not take place until further notice.
The wellbeing of our employees and participants is our highest priority and we are strictly following all government advice on social distancing and workplace occupational health and safety.
To help protect the Mambourin community, visitors to any of our sites will be required to wear a mask (unless they have a medical exemption), have their temperature checked on arrival and will be asked the following questions before entry:
- Are you feeling unwell? If so, do you have a cough, a fever or shortness of breath? Is someone you live with unwell or displaying any of these symptoms?
- Have you, or someone you live with, returned from overseas within the last 14 days?
- Have you recently come into contact with someone who has been diagnosed with coronavirus by a doctor or asked to self-isolate?
If a visitor registers a temperature above 38 degrees, answers yes to any of the above questions, or refuses to answer – they will not be granted access to the premises and will be asked to call us to make alternative arrangements. We appreciate your understanding during this time.
Communications and updates
As the coronavirus situation is changing rapidly we will be closely monitoring all health advice issued by the Department of Health and Human Services and will keep you up to date as further advice is issued.
All communications sent to our community members will also be posted below.
