An update from Vivid

This is a brief update from Scott Alexander on our response to Coronavirus


An Advice was issued to all Vivid staff on 18 March (click here to view) regarding the measures which have been implemented by Vivid and, in particular, their impact on service delivery.

This is a fast changing situation, so the advice that we give also continues to change. The most reliable source of up to date information from Vivid is on our website.

Vivid’s intent is to continue to deliver services. We will of course do this in line with the most up to date information from the Australian Government and Health Authorities.

In other words, we will strictly follow the expert advice provided and ensure that as far as possible our workplaces are safe for all. Unless you are concerned that you or your loved one has contracted Coronavirus, then we encourage the people we support to continue with their regular routines.

A lot of people depend on Vivid – people with disabilities, their parents, families and carers, our staff, to name but a few within the Vivid family. We also have, as a Community Service Organisation, an obligation to the broader community.

So our intent is to keep everyone safe whilst still providing the services and supports people with disabilities and their families need.

All communication regarding Vivid’s response to Coronavirus will be done via our website.

The website is the surest method we have of keeping you up to date with the latest and most reliable information concerning Coronavirus and specifically its impact on Vivid’s services and the people we support.

I’ve been very gratified by the expressions of support I’ve had from parents, families and carers. That has been very welcome.

We’re all in this together.

If you have any queries or concerns about any of the matters raised in this letter, please talk to the Manager at Vivid you usually have contact with.

Failing that, please feel free to contact me on 0417 532 969 or by email: [email protected].

Chief Executive Officer
