Important information regarding the Coronavirus

What an incredibly challenging time we are all experiencing in the face of the Coronavirus Pandemic. At OzChild our carers, children, young people and their family members along with the safety and well-being of our staff is our number one priority.

On Sunday 22 March Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced strict Stage One measures to stop the spread of Coronavirus. These measures will take effect from 12 noon Monday 23 March. View more information HERE.

We are focused on ensuring the sustainability of our workforce and delivery of services to support our clients. We are working hard to maintain our services while keeping everyone safe during these uncertain times.

OzChild has reviewed its practices to ensure the safety of all carers, children, young people, clients and staff, and to reduce risks, OzChild staff are following strict protocols around our practices and the way in which we work. Individual situations are being assessed daily and staff are taking all necessary precautions to keep themselves, children, young people and families safe.

We understand the unfolding and serious nature of this virus is causing significant concern in the community and want all members of the OzChild family to know we are doing everything we can to ensure our carers, children, young people and their family members are well supported during this time.

For reliable and up to date information we recommend checking the Australian Government Department of Health website.
