COVID-19 Support


The ease of COVID-19 restrictions on business closures and public gatherings around Australia has prompted organisations to commence the challenging task of returning to the workplace.

In order to perform the essential oversight duties, it is paramount that employers implement a safe return to work plan to ensure they aware of the various limitations that will prevent businesses from returning to pre-COVID normality and to understand how these changes will impact their plans to take their workforce from crisis to recovery.

The below resources are available to businesses to help employers and employees ensure that their return to work plan is a safe one.

Mental Health Support 

According to the WHO, mental health is “a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.

Beyond Blue provides information and support to help everyone in Australia achieve their best possible mental health, whatever their age and wherever they live.
