Times are tough, but so are we

We're in this together

Haven't the last few weeks been a whirlwind? With things shifting everyday, we want you to know that we are responding as best we know how, working at keeping our staff and clients safe and providing support to all who use our services.

Unless you've been socially distancing under a rock, you'll know that the challenges this pandemic is presenting change on a daily basis. We want you to know that Inspiro is working hard to support our staff, clients and community through this time by adapting our resources and services to help reduce the impact and duration of the pandemic. There are lots of changes to the way we work at the moment so please be patient, we want to continue to be in a position to deliver quality services to the Yarra Ranges community.

Please know that we will work hard to remain safe and responsive to our community’s needs

Since the start of the COVID-19 situation, we have implemented a number of screening and safety measures. With evidence of transmission within our community, we are adapting and changing our services to support our clients, including:

  • Touching base with our current clients and those with an appointment to talk through how we will manage their case  moving forward
  • Providing phone, video and face to face counselling services for those who need us most
  • Being a helpful voice at the end of the phone to provide triage and support for individuals

All other face to face services are on hold at this time however we will continue to innovate and look into alternative ways of supporting clients. This might be through video links, phone consultations and developing web resources. Please call us if you have an existing appointment and haven't heard from us yet. 

We are linking in with other health and service providers to ensure we are working together to offer continuity of care for members of our community.

We are thinking forward and planning for our collective recovery! We are looking into  developing new resources to support recovery plans and investigating ways we can help our community access the health services they need within a reasonable timeframe.

Community wellness is at the heart of everything Inspiro does. If there is ever a time for us to demonstrate our commitment now is that time. Please continue to check our website, Facebook page and your email inbox for our updates. And please contact us if you need some help,

Yours,

The Inspiro Team 😊
