COVID-19 Update

Due to the coronavirus diseases (COVID-19), Southern Cross Care has made several changes to upcoming events, volunteer recruitment and training sessions.

There has been an increase in Volunteer recruitment roles required to assist with the legislative requirements relating to COVID-19 now in place across Southern Cross Care.

Whilst we will endeavor to provide future events and more face to face training sessions, this will all depend on the Directions in place at the time.
