With the theme of ‘Diversity, Power and Purpose’, the WA State Volunteering Conference challenged delegates to leverage the diversity of the volunteering sector and harness its power to address some of the most significant issues faced by the community.

Our Volunteer Coordinator Karla and Volunteer Support Officer Naidine attended earlier this week and were inspired to learn, collaborate and shape the future of volunteering in WA.

COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccinations and Umbrella Multicultural Community Care Social Media /Website Announcement

Based on the latest health advice, the State Government outlined on the 20th of October an overarching mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy with a phased approach to most occupations and workforces within Western Australia. The phased approach is proportionate and based on the public health risk and is divided into two groups.

As a community care service provider, Umbrella Inc. and our staff (including volunteers) fall into Group 1. Under this phased approach, members of Group 1 must have their first dose by the 1st of December 2021 and be fully vaccinated by the 31st of December 2021.

Umbrella is following the state government policy and has communicated to our staff that they must have their first dose by the 1st of December 2021 and be fully vaccinated by the 31st of December 2021. To make this an easy transition, we have supported staff with COVID-19 vaccination information sessions, answering any concerns they might have and directing staff to vaccination clinics in their area.

Our CEO Anna Maria Harrison JP has confirmed that staff who have not had their first dose by the 1st of December 2021 will be unable to enter the Umbrella Inc. premises (both Belmont and Ascot), including clients’ homes. Similarly, staff who are not fully vaccinated by the 31st of December 2021 will not be able to enter Umbrella Inc.’s premises (Belmont and Ascot) or clients’ homes.

We continue to support our staff and ensure that there is a minor disruption in clients’ lives. Umbrella Inc. is committed to keeping our clients, staff and community safe.
