Monkami ceased Centre Based Supports in March 2020 due to the Chief Health Officer and DHHS community restrictions put it place. It was a difficult decision, however one that we whole heartedly stand by as it meant the safety and protection of our vulnerable and precious participants, their families and carers and our staff.

Our Supported Independent Living services have remained open and operating during the Stay At Home directions and will do so continuing on. Our staff are continuing to support our residents to abide by the community restrictions and requirements. We are managing the changing restrictions and supporting our people to respond to these, whilst continuing to provide a range of opportunities for our people to enjoy their lives during this global health crisis.

Throughout the Stay At Home restrictions, Monkami initiated "Zoom" sessions for participants who wished to access this service. We continue to operate this service and if you would like further information or would like to access these sessions you can contact us here or via telephone on 03 9725 8677.

Monkami is continuously monitoring the ever changing pandemic and the easing of restrictions across Victoria and the rest of Australia. As restrictions change, Monkami will implement the changes to services and when able, reopen our other services inclusive of our Centre Based Supports, whilst continuing to abide by the restrictions and requirements handed down by the Chief Health Officer and DHHS to ensure the utmost safety of our participants, their families, carers and our staff.

Monkami have advised our participants and families of the return to Centre Based Supports which is scheduled for Monday 11th January 2021 and we look forward to seeing you then!

We thank you for your support and patience at this time.
