Due to the challenging times, Winston (left) and Derek (right) who are our Activity Supervisors for the Community Development Program (CDP) in Yalata, have been actively supporting their community by working in conjunction with the MUNS (Municipal Services) team during the current COVID-19 restriction period.

Whilst also respecting the current social distancing restrictions, the community as a whole have been appreciative of our CDP staff assisting with maintaining essential community services throughout these challenging times.

Winston and Derek have helped with waste collection, general community maintenance and the clean-up of public areas across the Yalata community.

The EyrePlus CDP team has also been supporting the Yalata community by providing resource packs that include contact details for a range of local support services, recipes, puzzles, crosswords, quizzes, family activity ideas and even hand sanitiser.

The feedback from our CDP participants has been very positive, who have enjoyed the activity packs and other resources provided for them.

Although our participants have provided feedback that they do miss the general routine and group engagement, our services for CDP delivers, we are all in this together.

Through excellent communication practices within the community and working to support each other, they understand the current restrictions which are in place are to protect the safety and harmony of our community.
