Employment and Worksites

Updated 30 June 2020

Our supported employment services remain open and functional at this stage, with measures in place to protect our supported employees, team members, and the public. Supported Employees and Multicap team members have been requested to increase their hand hygiene practices and to not come to work if they are unwell. As more staff return to their workplaces, we are proactively implementing a staged rollout of temperature screening across our services and locations for staff, and for customers who visit our non-residential locations. Screening locations include personal protective equipment and instructions, and customers are being offered training to self-screen if they wish.
