Welcome to this new (financial) year Brainwaves edition.
I am pleased to advise that Epilepsy Tasmania is now once again fully operational in both offices – Hobart and Launceston.
Many of us found working from home both positive and at times challenging, but it is nice to be able to see each other and chat over a cuppa again.
We have just reviewed our new Covid-19 Health and Wellbeing telephone service and seen it to be a valuable new addition to the support we provide. It is not part of our current funding agreement with the state government but we will be seeking funds to continue this service. We have also updated our website with some additional information on Covid-19 in relation to epilepsy which you might like to read: https://epilepsytasmania.org.au/covid-19-corona-virus-and-epilepsy/
We have just created a Q & A video where our social worker Shirley discusses the training packages Epilepsy Tasmania offers. And over the coming weeks our nurse Emma will be discussing the services she provides.
Epilepsy Tasmania is still looking for volunteers to fill a number of positions including social media, fundraising and administration support so please spread the word.
As always please be in touch with any feedback or comments.
CEO Epilepsy Tasmania
