How Action Homeless is responding to COVID-19

Our COVID Mission Statement

People experiencing homelessness are some of the most vulnerable in our society, and Action Homeless is committed to doing our utmost to support them throughout this crisis, why is why our services have remained open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the world continues to monitor and assess measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we have taken additional steps to focus on our top priorities, which are to ensure we safeguard the health of our employees and preserve our ability to support our beneficiaries. Action Homeless is committed to providing a safe environment for our employees, their families and the communities in which we operate. At the same time, supporting our beneficiaries is a priority, and our teams are hard at work to ensure we can do that throughout this situation, while acting responsibly to mitigate further spread. 

Over recent months, we have implemented processes to ensure that we are able protect the health of all our staff, clients, contractors and visitors. We have implemented extra disinfection cleaning services, established “social distancing” guidelines for those employees who remain on-site, and developed protocols to support the health of employees and clients. Many of our employees who can perform their jobs from home and do not have to be in our offices are now working from home to minimise any potential virus transmission between employees.

We realise this situation remains very dynamic and we continue to review all provisions closely to confirm that we are able to continue supporting our clients.

Thank you for your trust in Action Homeless. We are here to offer solutions to help during this challenging time and remain committed to providing the best we can for those who rely on us.
