In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, ECSC would like to reassure all clients, participants and friends that we are here for you. We will not abandon you.
We are working tirelessly to ensure that every person we support, continues to receive support and any services they may need during this difficult time.
We will leave no one behind! Our Multicultural Aged Care Services Team will be continuing to call clients everyday and assisting them with deliveries of groceries and any other needs.
Our Multicultural Disability team and NDIS team will be ensuring that those participants who wish to continue to receive services for social participation can do so in a safe way. They will also be communicating via phone, text and WhatsApp messages to keep your spirits up and help you to focus on your goals in new and innovative ways.
Our Multicultural Children’s Services team continues with it’s playgroups until further notice is given from Department of Education. Group attendees will be subject to some screening and gloves, masks and hand sanitiser will be available at all times to ensure everyone is in a safe environment. Our Bicutlural Support will continue in ECE services until or if any closures are necessary.
