Description

The Gold Coast Homelessness Network (GCHN) invites you to attend a housing and homelessness sector desk top scenario testing session for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).

The purpose of this session is to consider, plan, and share how the sector will respond to a range of scenarios in the context of the GC2018. It will promote shared discussion about coordinated response and recovery efforts for housing and homelessness services, their clients, and the Gold Coast community. It will be focused on providing solutions and response options, including contingencies.

This session will provide services with an opportunity to consider their preparedness for the GC2018 utilising a range of scenarios based on workforce planning, security, traffic, and media.

Ms Rachel Nibbs, General Manager, Resilience and Recovery, QLD Reconstruction Authority, will present on considerations for community Recovery capability and Resilience building in relation to acts of extreme violence. Drawing on her experience during the Martin Place Siege recovery Ms Nibbs’ presentation will cover the immediate and longer term Recovery issues and considerations for practitioners.
