Update from the CEO
Burke and Beyond update
To all participants, families and caregivers, here is some updated information for everyone.
Yesterday, the Government of Victoria announced that they were bringing back level three restrictions for the great Melbourne metropolitan area. This is in place for the next 6 weeks.
This means that at this stage, we will have to go into another closure of our day services. This will apply as of tomorrow the 9th of July. We are sorry about the short notice but we are required to follow these newly released guidelines.
This will be very disappointing for our staff and participants alike and I am sure that it will cause some degree of stress to all of our families, but we will try and support people as much as we can moving forward.
We will continue to offer zoom sessions and will try to expand the choice of topics and hours of delivery over the next few weeks. As per the last few months, your service Coordinator will be in touch on a regular basis to discuss those options. Support on a one to one basis will continue as needed. If you have not been able to take advantage of this type of support so far, you may want to explore that option by connecting with your Coordinator.
We look forward to be able to welcome people at our services again in the near future.
