HBWN Panel Discussion - Weekly Business Update - Covid-19
A fabulous Covid-19 Business Update Virtual Event this morning, Monday 1 June 2020, with exciting updates for our local tourism and hospitality industries with guest presenter Janette Hyde, critical deadlines for JobKeeper, changes to government grants and subsidies effective today, along with some sobering statistics and support information on domestic and family violence in our community.

Liberty Prevention and Awareness Specialist/Training and Development Coordinator, Brooke Mags. Brooke talked about the impact of Coronavirus and associated restrictions on the incidence and severity of domestic violence nationally and in our local community. Importantly, she will be able to help businesses understand their responsibilities around DV, especially with many now managing a "work-from-home" workforce. Home may not always be a safe place.
