Home and Community Services recently gifted all their Community Workers with their very own Catholic Healthcare backpacks and new Care Runs Deep sunscreen.

Home and Community Services Regional Manager for South East Sydney, Liam Whitley said, “The backpacks and sunscreen were gifted to our frontline staff, in time for Christmas, for their compassion and commitment to our clients and working tirelessly throughout what’s been a difficult year.”

“The backpacks were chosen as a practical way for our staff to carry their PPE, phones and supporting materials in their mobile roles.”

“Our Community Workers are special people and help our clients live more independently in their own homes. For them it’s more than a job. It’s an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. We wanted to thank them for caring especially during these extraordinary times when our clients may have felt more vulnerable, less active and connected,” he added.

Community Workers were delighted to receive their gifts:

Robyn said, “Thank you. Both gifts will come in handy.”

Elis said, “It is nice to feel appreciated and receive something in return.”

Sarah said, “Thank you for the backpack and sunscreen – it was such a pleasant surprise.”

Approximately 600 gifts were presented to Community Workers over the past month.
