Social Experiences, Holidays and Events

Updated 30 June 2020

As more staff return to their workplaces, we are proactively and voluntarily implementing a staged rollout of temperature screening across our services and locations for staff, and for customers who attend our non-residential locations. Screening locations include personal protective equipment and instructions, and customers are being offered training to self-screen if they wish.

Community Hubs

Multicap’s Community Hubs will remain as locations where our customers can be supported, again with priority being given to customers for whom this support is essential. 

Measures in place:

  • Abiding by the standard social distancing measures of 1.5 metres, and 4 square metres per person in each room.
  • Maximising ventilation by opening windows and doors.
  • Greeting people with waves or verbally as opposed to shaking hands.
  • Regularly disinfecting high-touch surfaces such as tables, kitchen benches and door knobs.
  • Limiting food sharing.
  • Increasing outdoor activities on Multicap owned sites.
  • Deferring non-essential contractors and visitors to site.
  • Abiding by government directions for numbers of people permitted to gather in groups.

Avegates Social Experience Network

Due to social distancing rules in place, all scheduled Avegates group activities and holidays have been postponed or cancelled for the time being. This is largely due to the closure of public events and spaces. Customers will be contacted when these activities recommence.

Regarding our events planned later in the year, including the Interservice Cup in August and Christmas Carols in November, a decision will be made on these events later in the year.

We are pleased to offer our Avegates customers new services at this time: 

Our Specialised Behaviour Support Services and Support Coordination teams continue to provide essential services to all relevant customers as required.
