The COVID-19 crisis has affected Courage to Care operations just as it has all responsible Australians. Our first priority is the health and wellbeing of our volunteers which is particularly
important as so many are in the higher-risk category of 60+ years.
We will keep you updated with developments in C2C policy during the health emergency.
- In line with expert advice to practise physical distancing, we are encouraging all our people – staff, committee members, volunteers and associates – not to come into the office unless it is essential.
- To protect our volunteers from exposure risk (and, of course, the students and teachers with whom we come into contact), we have cancelled all our in-school programs through to the end of July. We are in contact with schools to reschedule their Upstander Programs, and we’ll continue to review our program schedule for forthcoming months as health restrictions change.
- We’re delivering volunteer training remotely. We aim to use this time as productively as possible in preparing ourselves to deliver the best possible programs we can when these measures are lifted.
There are some training units that, unfortunately, cannot be delivered remotely and these will be rescheduled for later in the year.
- A number of other events have also been affected. For further information, call (9533-0955) or contact us via email <link contact>
- Volunteers will be advised of changes to programs for which they are registered.
