Disability Contact Officer (DCO) network

The Australian War Memorial have recently introduced a Disability Contact Officer (DCO) network and are interested in speaking with agencies that have an established DCO network.

Please email employment@awm.gov.au if you have a DCO Network and would be happy to share some learnings on getting it up and running and embedded.

Workplace Giving Programs

The Not-for-profit Unit in Treasury are looking into Workplace Giving programs within Federal Government agencies and hoping SAF members may be able to assist.

For context, we are hoping to:

  • compile a summary of workplace giving programs within the agencies
  • look into whether agencies have been encouraged to adopt workplace giving programs
  • explore the impacts of the BETA Report and whether the approaches found in the Report were conveyed to agencies

At this stage we would like input specifically from Federal agencies. If you have any information or insights into the above I would be more than happy to receive them. We are looking to finalise the brief this month so responses by mid August would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

WHS – Location check in App

Sport Integrity Australia are looking at getting an approved ‘location check in App’ (similar to Safezone App) for field staff that work at Sport Integrity Australia.

We’re hoping to get an idea/recommendations from other small government agency’s that may be using a similar app for their field staff.

We operate under a protected network and so our security/IT areas will need to approve/verify the safe use of the app.

Please respond to tom.hicks@sportintegrity.gov.au or phone 02 62224216.

Mental Health First Aid Officers & Policy

Hi Everyone,

I am keen to connect with agencies who have trained Mental Health First Aiders in place and have an associated Mental Health First Aid policy – I am hoping you would be able to talk me through your process and share your policy. I’d also be keen to talk to agencies who investigated MHFA and decided not to proceed. You can reach me at rebecca.mead@arc.gov.au . Thank you 🙂
