The ACT! Toolkit consists of the following elements:
- Home Visiting Emergency Readiness Discussion tool – this provides a step-by-step process for home support providers to use when discussing emergency preparedness with their clients, including providing referral pathways to emergency services.
- Leave-behind client resources – these resources are based on the NSW Office of Emergency Management’s Get Ready messaging. They include fact sheets, checklists, a fridge magnet, flyers and a client resource folder. They also include flyers to emergency preparedness programs provided by our emergency service partners.
- Training resources – this includes our easy-to-use online training tool for staff and volunteers and a face-to-face session guide for trainers.
- Project Evaluation resources – these reports help us to share what we have learnt through this project.
