IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM OUR CEO
I want you to know that C2A is here to help our participants and customers during this difficult time.
C2A has a role to play and we will continue to endeavour to help our participants, our customers and the communities in which we operate. We are doing everything we can to maintain our usual high service levels whilst keeping our staff and everyone who interacts with us safe.
Our Community and Work Connection hubs and are still open; and our work crews are still engaged in a wide variety of work tasks such as assembly, production, recycling, screen printing and grounds maintenance. We’re still helping communities in need, just as we have for the past 60 years.
I would like to share with you one of the ways we are positively adapting to this unprecedented event.
Our Bayswater team have swapped candle making to make hand sanitiser in the coronavirus fight, refocusing on the urgent public need for clean hands.
Our aim at C2A through this crisis is to support our participants, our customers and the broader communities in which we operate, and to ensure C2A returns to full strength when we are through this.
On behalf of all at C2A, we thank you for your ongoing support as we all continue to make the best of these trying times.
Keith Mortimer, Chief Executive Officer
