EERN NEWS UPDATE
Available Stock. EERN has a good selection of furniture / whitegoods / small electrical goods in the warehouse. Refrigerators are in short supply as many of those collected fail the EERN testing routines designed to provide our clients with more reliable whitegoods.
Thank you to our EERN volunteers who allowed EERN to continue to assist its clients in need during the long lockdowns and the ongoing COVID-19 outbreaks. Well done!
Welcome to new volunteers Janet, Paula, Ken and Mike.
EERN is open to Member agencies and their clients under the following guidelines : (i) Agency workers submit a formal Request for Goods through the supplied web-link request form and have received emailed confirmation of the agreed visit date and time; (ii) adhere to strict scheduling of warehouse visits; and (iii) where possible, pickup goods on the same day as they are selected by the clients.
The EERN warehouse team will select requested items ready for pickup by the client’s carrier or courier.
EERN Warehouse Policy. Agency clients can enter the warehouse with or without an Agency case worker. All visitors must be signed in, confirm they have no COVID symptoms and wear a mask (unless they have a printed exemption). No Mask, No Entry. These policies are being maintained because of the ongoing COVID issues which can (and are) affect our volunteers .
