Life Without Barriers is encouraging all staff, foster carers and the people we support to download the COVIDSafe app in order to promote and protect the health of our community.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our priorities are continuity of care for the people we support and promoting and protecting the wellbeing of staff, carers, children and clients.

Much of the work we do involves person to person contact, which sees us connect with a multitude of communities – many of which include vulnerable people with compromised health needs who may be more susceptible to developing serious illness as a result of this virus.

We recognise that the widespread use of this app will keep people safe by ensuring health authorities are able to accurately identify people who have come into contact with someone who has a confirmed case of the virus, so that they can immediately seek medical care.

The new COVIDSafe app is completely voluntary. The more Australians who connect to the COVIDSafe app, the quicker the government can find the virus.
