Shelter WA has received funding from Lotterywest for implementation of an Infection Control Program (ICP) for WA non-clinical and non-residential homelessness services, community housing organisations and congregate living facilities.
With ongoing prevalence of COVID-19 in the community, the ICP Program will support services with their infection control management and other relevant pathogens within this sector.
Shelter WA will manage the project with oversight from the ICP Steering Committee. Shelter WA has employed a suitably qualified and experienced project manager to deliver the program. To support Shelter WA and ensure the projects outcomes are met, we have established a Steering Committee to provide advice and guidance to the project over the next twelve months.
Members of the Steering Committee are invited to contribute in the following ways:
- Attend monthly meetings.
- Provide advice and share knowledge, experiences and perspective.
- Distribute information about the project through their networks.
- Agree to your name and organisation being acknowledged in the project reporting.
Term: Twelve months.
The Steering Committee will comprise representatives of organisations with relevant experience and knowledge of the issues community housing and specialist homelessness services are currently facing with community transmission of COVID-19.
Shelter WA are looking for representatives from the following organisations in the following sectors to fill vacant positions:
- Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation/Service
- Community Housing Organisation
- Congregate Living Provider
- Regionally-based service
Please contact Elizabeth Brown, Shelter WA’s Infection Control Project Coordinator on email@example.com with your expressions of interest outlining briefly the organisation you are representing and your relevant experience and why you would like to be involved in the project.
