2019 REFLECTION AND COVID-19 UPDATE
With all the Covid-19 changes currently taking place, we thought it might be good to reflect on what happened last year as we consider the times ahead.
As we consider the health and well being of our staff and community we have been planning for how to deliver impacting programs during this time and support all of the young people that have a been a part of our programs over the last few years. We wanted to provide our latest Annual Report to those who may have missed it to see what we were up to last year. The Charity Bounce team are using these social impact learnings to inform how we can continue to support young people and the launch of new initiatives over this challenging period.
Covid 19 Update- April 2020
Over the last few weeks, we have been monitoring the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation and we have been carefully reviewing all of our programs and procedures to ensure we develop careful and measured responses. It is a challenging time for all of us, and there are many people that have been affected by the recent outbreak of COVID-19, including the staff, volunteers, and young people involved in our programs.
Charity Bounce has taken the following measures to ensure the safety of our community:
- All staff and volunteers have been working from home.
- Basketball resiliency and school programs have all been cancelled until further notice.
- Central Australia program trips have been cancelled to protect vulnerable communities until further notice.
- Bounce Academy individual (one on one) training programs are currently being reviewed based on government directives and partner restrictions, with strict health and hygiene protocols in place.
We are establishing online systems for remote program and service delivery and will communicate regarding the availability as this continues to be established. We will be launching some new initiatives in the coming weeks…
