At CORE Community Services, we are leaning on our core values: Care, Opportunity, Respect and Empowerment. These values have guided us since our founding in 1979, and we test all our actions against them, because they will continue to be our core values for years to come.
Our organisation exists to protect the communities we serve and help them manage through the most complex of challenges. Management and staff at CORE Community Services are committed to maintaining critical services for all our clients across all our services during this time of unprecedented uncertainty caused by Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
We recognise the urgent need to meet Government-directed measures to limit the spread and impact of the virus, but our priority remains to serve our communities, by delivering critical services while ensuring the safety and well-being of our clients, our staff and the wider community.
At this point of time, we are still providing services across our organisation. We’re also actively looking into alternative measures and ways to reduce the risk in all that we do but also provide our essential services. We are developing strategies to allow us to continue to deliver services to our community and to stay connected, despite physical distancing requirements, limitations on gatherings and events and the increasing dependence on modern technology is not easily available to everyone we serve.
