Safety for All

In line with the SA Government mandate, people who work in the disability services sector must be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to get a job. Heart2Hold Foundation is happy with this decision, which will help keep COVID-19 out of our community. To join the team, you will need to show proof that you are up to date on your COVID-19 shots.

As an NDIS provider, we are required to fulfil certain obligations in accordance with the NDIS Code of Conduct and the NDIS Practice Standards, in addition to meeting the conditions of registration. These obligations concern the provision of safe and high-quality supports and services, as well as the management of risks associated with the provision of supports to NDIS participants.

The NDIS Quality & Safeguards Commission has distributed a fact sheet to providers about the preparedness, prevention, and management of the COVID-19 epidemic. This resource provides support providers with actionable guidance that can be used to ensure workers take reasonable precautions to protect people with disabilities and themselves, to prepare for an outbreak of COVID-19, to respond to suspected or confirmed cases in a variety of service settings, and to manage an outbreak of COVID-19.

If you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19, we strongly recommend that you be checked. Please check the SA Health website or phone the SA Health COVID-19 information line at 1800 253 787 for the most recent information regarding symptoms and health alerts.

Please let us know if you, a member of your immediate family, or someone you have had recent contact with has been tested for COVID-19 or is currently undergoing testing for the virus. This will allow us to ensure that appropriate infection control measures are in place while you wait for the results of your tests. Please get in touch with us as soon as possible by phone or e-mail if the results of the test come back positive.

Information regarding disability services and COVID-19 can be found on the NDIS (also available in Easy Read). Simply click on this link to access the most recent information. 

The NDIS also enables participants to spend their plans on specific COVID-19-related products, such as masks and gowns for themselves or their support workers, as well as other specific things that are required in order to receive services. This page contains information regarding the NDIS’s efforts to support participants, and it may be accessed here.
