Great possibilities are nurtured when two reputable organisations partner together for the benefit of others.

Corporate First Aid Australia (CFAA) and Community Home Care (CHC) have signed an Interagency Partnership Agreement which commits the two organisations to work together to strengthen community services for the aged and people with disabilities in the South West region.

Community Home Care (CHC), is a highly respected and long established not-for-profit organisation that provides Home and Community Care (HACC) services to the aged and people with disabilities in the regional areas of Bunbury, Collie and Donnybrook. The distinctive purple umbrella logo is a familiar sight on CHC vehicles which deliver services to the front door of many people and connect them through social engagement to their peers in the community.

‘We at CHC are proud to partner with CFAA to work towards building and strengthening aged care service provision in the South West’, said Chief Executive Officer, Sue Clements. ‘The depth and breadth of knowledge that Jane and her team hold both in training and the aged care sector has made them the award winning agency. CHC is a trusted service provider in the South West for 30 years and we rely heavily on trained dedicated staff’.

‘Through CFAA we are assured that our staff meet the highest standards. I am confident the forging of this partnership will be paramount in not just ensuring CHC and CFAA remain leaders into the future, but that the community services sector is strengthened’

HACC services include personal care, transport, gardening, domestic assistance and social support programs, which enable people to maintain social connection and remain living independently in their homes for longer. For further information contact Community Home Care on 9721 4988.

Corporate First Aid Australia’s Director, Jane Goff is driven to ensure that the community is served by excellence both in training delivery and qualified professional care workers.

‘Consultation and collaboration with industry is at the core of our specialised training delivery’, Director, Jane Goff said. ‘Our trainers are front-line nurses who work in residential aged care settings and within the community as nurses and assessors. It is essential that we train carers for a range of care settings and that currency is maintained by regular consultation with industry’.

According to CFAA’s Training Manager, Dianne Needham, ‘CFAA’s mandate is to ensure that our graduates are ‘work ready’ and by agencies such as Community Home Care supplying placement opportunities, they are essentially ‘growing their own workforce’.

CFAA’s scope of delivery includes Certificate III Individual Support (Aging, Home and Community), Certificate III Individual Support (Disability), First Aid, CPR Training and other non-accredited specialised skillsets and professional development workshops, such as Team Empowerment and e-Kara designed to assist managers and carers alike.
