State Recovery Advisory Group will support State Government in WA’s recovery from COVID-19 pandemic

Shelter WA has been appointed to the State Recovery Advisory Group a roundtable which will support the State Government in WA’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Who is a part of the roundtable?

The State Recovery Advisory Group includes representatives from business, industry, not-for-profit organisations, UnionsWA, the public sector, local government and the community.

The group will provide high level and strategic advice on the impacts of COVID-19 and help to guide the development of the State Recovery Plan.

It will provide valuable feedback to the State Government on ongoing and emerging challenges relating to COVID-19.

This will allow the Government and the State Recovery Controller, Sharyn O’Neill, to better understand the wide-ranging impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as help identify recovery opportunities for inclusion in the State Recovery Plan.

Well placed to move into recovery

“While these have been difficult and unprecedented times, Western Australians have done a terrific job in helping stop the spread of COVID-19,” said Premier McGowan.

“We acknowledge that this has been an extremely difficult time, particularly for WA small businesses and supporting them to get back on their feet will be an important part of our State’s recovery.

“Now with the State Recovery Advisory Group in place, Western Australia is well placed to move into the recovery phase, so we can rebuild our great State.”
