The Greek Welfare Centre wants to reassure you that we are monitoring the COVID-19 Coronavirus situation and keeping up to date with advice from the Federal and State Governments. The well-being of our clients, staff and wider community is priority and as such we have made the following decisions to minimise the risk of spreading the virus:

GROUP PROGRAMS 

For clients who are receiving Meals, Domestic/Home Assistance and Individual Social Support, please be aware we have put strategies into place to ensure continuity of services. Each of our client’s needs are being individually assessed and responded to accordingly.

ALL our group gatherings have been CANCELLED until further notice. This includes Kipseli, all of our Health & Well-being groups including Computing, Arts & Craft, Exercise/Walking, Youth Dance group and Playgroup.

IN-HOME SERVICES

For clients who are receiving Meals, Domestic/Home Assistance and Individual Social Support, please be aware we have put strategies into place to ensure continuity of services. Each of our client’s needs are being individually assessed and responded to accordingly.

WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE THE FOLLOWING:

• Wash your hands frequently with soap and water (before/after food, going to the toilet etc.)

• Cover your cough and sneeze with a tissue, dispose of tissues and wash your hands

• If you are unwell, or concerned you have been in contact with someone who is, isolate yourself and inform us as soon as possible.

Be alert, not alarmed– these measures are precautionary, and the overall risk of getting COVID-19 is still low. Above all, we ask that you remember our Archbishop’s advice to “increase our prayers to God so that a cure can be quickly found for this trial that has beset our planet.”
