QEC Morwell office and weekend respite for clients

Advice to The Hon. Mary Wooldridge, Minister for Community Services, Minister for Disability Services and Reform and Jenny Mikakos MP, Shadow Minister for Seniors and Ageing, Shadow Minister for Community Services, Shadow Minister for Children,  Friday 28 February 2014


Today our CEO, Director of Nursing and Manager Systems and Risk met with the QEC Community team based in Morwell.

The team will be moving to a new office location outside of the affected area next week. We are actively de-briefing with the team and working through strategies to support the team and our clients.

The families, that we are currently working with, will be receiving an invitation from our Morwell team to invite them to a 'fresh air weekend' in Melbourne. The intention is that the weekend will be an activities based weekend, that will be supported by our Melbourne team.


Victoria's Vulnerable Children - Our Shared Responsibility, Baseline Performance Data Report 2013 released by Minister Wooldridge illustrates the take up of universal services - such as maternal and child health and education. It is a great resource, and will allow for performance review and understanding of challenges across the range of services in this space. 


The report does not include the influential work of Victoria's early parenting centres in early intervention with vulnerable children and their families. The team at QEC is keen to contribute to future reports. The systems we use and the programs that we run will provide rich data for those publications.
