The COVIDSafe app is a key part of the Australian Government’s efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19. Having the confidence to find and contain outbreaks quickly will mean governments can ease restrictions while still keeping Australians safe. Click HERE for further information.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected members of our community in different ways and we all have our own ways of coping with the changes that are impacting our lives. There are people who would like to offer a helping hand, and those who could do with a little help.

To make it easier for people to connect, the Shire of Lake Grace and local  community groups are working together on the Helping Hands project. 

Together, we would like to empower and support our local community during the COVID–19 pandemic. 

 How can we help?

Some ideas include:

  • weekly check In        
  • a friendly phone call     
  • help to get groceries and medicines
  • practical help around the house

 How can you lend a hand?

  • delivering supplies
  • providing essential transport (e.g. doctor's appointments)
  • urgent household maintenance
  • phoning those living on their own  
  • by suggesting other ways you could help

Contact the Shire of Lake Grace on 9890 2500 or emailhelpinghand@lakegrace.wa.gov.au  if you need a hand or can lend a hand, or would like more information. All contact will remain confidential and we will not provide you contact details to anyone without your knowledge and permission
