Richard Bruggemann - Reinforcing your rights in SA during COVID-19.
Reinforcing your rights in SA during COVID-19.
SACID Board Member Richard Bruggemann has been appointed a Government guardianship role in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
While we all need to stay at home to stop the spread of COVID-19.
As long as you feel well, you are still allowed to go out for
- essentials (food, medicine)
- medical appointments
- to exercise
It is not ok for your service provider to stop you from doing the things that the Government have said are still ok to do.
Richard will work closely with supported accommodation providers and guardians to make sure the rights of people with disability are respected during this time.
