We are here to support you.

Thank you for your adaptability and resilience over the past two weeks as WA transitioned through the one week lock-down, extended limitations due to COVID-19 and the devastation of the Wooroloo bushfires.

We welcome the WA Premier’s announcement this morning that from Sunday 14th February we will return to the minimal restrictions we were all abiding by at end of January 2021.

What does this mean for you and MIFWA?

From Sunday 14th February MIFWA will return to working to the protocols outlined below, with our sites re-opening, a return to face-to-face supports and office work, and masks are no longer being compulsory:

  • MIFWA Midland Office is reopened
  • Rockingham Office is reopened
  • Kingsley Office is reopened
  • Lorikeet Centre reopens with pre-booking required to manage numbers and abide by the 1.5mtre social distancing rule
  • Face to face training recommences where distancing requirements are in line with government advice.

We are here to support you and to listen, and as always welcome your feedback and contribution. Furthermore, don’t hesitate to reach out if you need support on 9237 8900 or info@mifwa.org.au.

What You Can Do

  • Continue healthy habits – eating well, exercising and getting a restful night’s sleep are all helpful. Talk to our staff about ways you can do this
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and running water, for at least 20 seconds. Dry with a paper towel or hand dryer
  • Try not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow
  • Phone your GP first if you need medical attention. They will tell you what to do
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser, when handwashing facilities are not around
  • Engage in positive self-care and support each other
  • Reach out and talk to us. We are here for you.
