COVID-19 Emergency Volunteering
Volunteering can provide vital support to people in the community who are impacted in an emergency – that’s why we’ve launched a new emergency volunteering website calling on people to lend a hand during the COVID-19 public health emergency.
We are calling for members of the public to register their details through a simple sign up process and help deliver essential services to those most vulnerable in our community.
If you are a community organisation, Local Government Authority or any other organisation who needs additional volunteers in relation to this emergency, then please contact us.
Extension of date for submission of COVID-19 management plans
DCJ have extended the deadline for COVID-19 management and vaccination policy for DCJ service providers. The deadline for these plans was 8 December 2021 and it has now been extended to 22 December 2021.
Plans are now required to be in place by 22 December 2021.
DCJ is working with peak organisations, and developing guidance information resources and a series of webinars to support service providers develop COVID management plans, including risk assessments. The webinars will be held in the week commencing 15 November 2021. Details about the webinar dates and times will be available on our webpage next week.
Some information and resources, including the NGO Guide to Recovery and examples of DCJ’s COVID-19 risk assessments, are now available on the webpage for your information. More content will be uploaded as it’s developed.
Australian and NSW Government Resources
All currently operating businesses must assess the risks associated with exposure to COVID-19 and implement control measures to manage those risks. They must also assess any other new or changed risks arising from COVID-19, for example, customer aggression, high work demand or working in isolation.“When should I do a risk assessment?” – Safe Work Australia
