We are in the midst of a unique crisis that poses a particularly significant threat to the lives of people with disability and complex needs. Many of the people we support are already susceptible to chest infections and pneumonia because of their limited mobility. COVID-19 makes this threat considerably greater when people are stuck in hospital.

The Summer Foundation has made the bold decision to re-deploy some of our expertise to provide tangible, direct support to people with disability at this difficult time through new key response projects.

Our Discharge Follow-up Service will make phone contact with people with disability with complex needs who are being discharged quickly from hospitals to make sure their supports and essential services are in place.

Following on from this project is a service that will help people with disability discharged from hospital by searching for housing that aligns with their housing needs and preferences. See more details.

Our Phone Outreach project will connect with people in the Summer Foundation network to check on their health and wellbeing, and provide practical information and support with problem solving.

For further details see our Connect & Support initiative.

You can also read about some of our other work in this update.

Stay safe, 

Di Winkler,
CEO
