Ideas help taskforces support vulnerable members of our community

Posted by The iThink Team (Admin) 3 months ago

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in complex challenges, and the need for rapid change for all Western Australians. We asked you to share your innovative ideas on how we can support our most vulnerable members during the COVID-19 pandemic. You stepped up to the challenge, posting more than 50 ideas, and over 200 comments and 100 votes.  

The three main themes that emerged from the challenge were volunteering, better ways to connect locally, and technology.

While the challenge has closed, work behind the scenes continues.

Many of the ideas on iThink have been shared with the Department of Communities, which is the lead agency overseeing the welfare needs of our state. The department has established nine taskforces to directly respond to some of the issues and challenges the pandemic has created.

Some of these ideas have progressed to form part of the bigger projects currently underway at Communities.

Follow the Department of Communities on social media to keep up to date with the great work they are doing.
