The Summer Foundation’s program of training to hospital staff, support coordinators, housing seekers and other groups across the country hit a large bump in the road with the COVID-19 lockdown in March.
However, we responded quickly and moved to different ways of delivering our programs online. Webinars have been developed for all training and information sessions are being successfully delivered online.
UpSkill, our program to build the capacity of the support coordination and allied health workforce, has seen booked out webinars for regional Victorian audiences; and the Leaving Hospital Well webinars for hospital discharge staff attracted hundreds of participants. To see all our upcoming webinars visit our events page.
The Tenancy Matching Service has also moved to online delivery of information about Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) and new SDA property listings. It is a convenient way for housing seekers and people who think they may be eligible for SDA funding to take the first steps towards choosing where they live and who they live with.
