Our Telethon is an all-day event held annually at the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre in Footscray (Melbourne) and broadcast over our social media channels.
The ASRC has been recognised as an essential service by the Victorian State Government and as such the ASRC Telethon on World Refugee Day went ahead as a physical event while adhering to strict COVIDSafe protocols.
The safety and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers and visitors who took part in the physical Telethon event was of utmost importance to us. As such, we implemented strict physical distancing guidelines and cleaning protocols to protect everyone who attended the centre on the day of the Telethon.
Measures were implemented including capped limits of people, increased cleaning of high-touch surfaces including headsets, work stations, amenities and strict enforcement of the 1.5 metre rules during all filming of live content (including interviews and performances).
