COVID-10 Local Recovery Committee

In March of 2020 the COVID-19 Community Recovery Plan was endorsed by the Esperance Council and the Esperance Local Recovery Committee, Economic Sub Committee and Community Support Sub Committee were established.

The purpose of the committees is to regularly review the economic and community climate within the whole shire during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Resources company, IGO Ltd, donated $150,000 toward the COVID-19 Community Recovery Plan ensuring continued economic and community support during these challenging times.

The sub committees meet monthly to review the situation within the community and see where assistance can be directed. This includes equipping our aged care services with COVID-safe gear, supporting community groups, local business and services.

Each subcommittee comprises of elected Council members, Community members, stakeholders and representatives from services within that area.
