COVID-19 Recovery: Outstanding Local Hero - Susan Zammit
Susan has been a Community Visitor volunteer with the Office of the Public Advocate for 19 years. Her role involves visiting vulnerable Victorians living in Supported Residential Services in the Boroondara area to make sure their human rights are being upheld.
During the pandemic, Susan was quick to pivot to ‘remote safeguarding’ to ensure residents were protected and their wellbeing was maintained. This involved telephoning Supported Residential Services and checking in on residents and their daily living conditions.
