July has seen the start of the new financial year and with that has come some new changes and information to better support our sector during these uncertain times. With that said, we’ve had some internal changes ourselves. Our editor David has had to take some time off therefore Nadiana stepped into the role for this edition. Filling her role, we have Camille as the content guru, providing you with information you need to know! As always, our team is always eager to hear about what suits your needs and what it is that you would like to see included in these regular updates so be sure to get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org
This edition of the News Digest has some vital information for your service to be across. If you haven’t had the chance to familiarise yourself with the updates in the CHSP Program Manual, we have provided a summary of the changes below. Be sure to take a read and download the manual for further information.
At the end of July all CHSP service providers that received additional meals and/or ad hoc funding in 2019-20 through the Emergency CHSP COVID-19 Support Funding Round would have completed the performance report template outlining emergency funding expenditures in line with the grant objectives to the Community Grants Hub acquittals team. This is a timely reminder to ensure that you cost and save the evidence of all expenditure, not only during these unprecedented times but always to ensure best practice.
There have also been some fantastic resources produced by organisations and both State and Federal government. Take a look at these to support your staff and colleagues during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of these mental health resources are applicable for everyday work life too.
A number of virtual events are coming up to keep older Australians engaged and active from home. Explore some of these at-home events as well as others under the Events section of our News Digest.
Finally, if you are in need of some deliciously made, home-cooked meals, Kallico Catering has you covered. They provide meals for NDIS recipients, older Australians and anybody else who is keen to eat some of the best Indigenous bush tucker and contemporary Australian cuisine. You can access their information through the Resources and Services section of our News Digest.
