Community support chat - community project hosted online by Social work students -
Summary: An online platform was created to examine the impacts of the pandemic on the Australian workforce. Many people lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 outbreak and were impacted differently, so they were invited to this forum to share their lived experiences. The main objectives of the community project were included:
Provide participants with an open-forum style, thought-provoking conversation.
Meet community members from diverse backgrounds, get together for a meaningful discussion over the impacts of losing jobs on their physical and mental health.
Find solutions to address the unemployment phenomenon by sharing your strategies and assisting each other in achieving the best possible solutions. Complete outline and template on running the event, and full project evaluation attached as word document.
