Kicking the Coronavirus with the other Big C’s – Communication, Collaboration and Compassion

By now it is apparent that to survive the pressures we are facing over oncoming weeks and months unprecedented efforts will be required of us all – not only for the sake of the children, young people and families who are the recipients of our organisations’ services but for all Queensland children, young people and families. Our community will be looking to us to provide the moral leadership, ingenuity and dedication in ensuring that children, young people and families are kept safe and well.

Our sector may not possess the medical expertise needed to combat the virus and slow down its spread, but we do hold the expertise when it comes to promoting the emotional health and well-being of children, young people and their families. We are the ones who have expertise when it comes to outreaching to communities to hold them safe and in helping them in their recovery from disasters. We all have an invaluably significant role to play in kicking the Coronavirus – it may not be in finding a cure or vaccine, but it will be in curbing its social impact.

In this edition of eNews, we are updating you about strategies being pursued under the umbrella of the three C’s – Communication, Collaboration and Compassion – all essential commodities in fighting the scourge of this virus.
