To our community,
An update for Holdsworth Community from our CEO, Ruth Kestermann.
I’m sure many of you have been following the NSW State Government’s regular updates for easing restrictions. We are eager to resume our programs while maintaining the safety of participants, staff and volunteers.
Following the NSW Department of Health advice, I am excited to announce the opening up of Holdsworth services in a new and more personalised way. Holdsworth’s biggest strength is our personal connection and individualised support. We will be focusing more on this approach by engaging with you individually in your local community. In addition, we will connect you with smaller groups of like-minded people in your local area to share more personalised experiences.
Our current services will now include the following small local groups, in addition to our ongoing individual supports in the community and in the home:
- Indoor Playgroups and Baby Room; (Our playground is open again to the public.)
- Afterschool and weekend NDIS activities;
- Social gatherings and wellbeing classes for older people;
- Limited bus and premises hire.
All our programs adhere to the strict hygiene guidelines required by the NSW Department of Health. Information about attendance, hiring conditions and hygiene protocols can be found here.
To ensure we continue to protect against the spread of Coronavirus in our community, our Gaden Café will unfortunately remain closed.
Please don’t hesitate to give us a call on (02) 9302 3600 if you have any questions or concerns.
