City of Perth launches community careline

Impacts from COVID-19 on the world’s economy has been well-noted and significant action has been undertaken across all levels of government in response. 

However, it is also imperative to acknowledge the significant impact the pandemic has had on the health and wellbeing of the community, particularly on the way we live, work and play. This will ultimately have short, medium and long-term impacts on our health and wellbeing.

The City of Perth is therefore stepping up to help its most vulnerable community members during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The City’s Community Services team has established a contact centre for those needing information or referral to services during COVID-19.

The City of Perth Community Careline allows community members to self-register if in need of support.
