Two Dunsborough entrepreneurs have taken it upon themselves to produce an online forum for businesses to update locals on products available during COVID-19 isolation.

The free website oursouthwest.com.au will act as a services directory for the Capes community and was developed by Emma Morgan and Justin Liu.

Emma Morgan said the aim was for people to have a central website to go to and find delivery and online services in their region to enable them to more effectively home isolate.

“We are encouraging people to get creative, think outside the box and find new ways to continue their business or service online and share with people how they can deliver safe services,” she said.

“The website will have weekly blogs and advice for everybody from trained and qualified professionals such as clinical psychologists, nutritionists, dieticians, allied health professionals, chief financial officers, education experts and personal trainers on all topics to keep people healthy and stay mentally well.”

Categories included on the Website include self care and mental health, food, beverage and restaurant delivery services, financial advice and support, education and homeschooling, health and wellbeing, professional services, trade services, online entertainment and online hobbies.

Individuals interested in registering for the forum should upload the following information: business name, category, contact information a short description of service or menu and how to offer contactless, hygienic or online services, hours available and delivery range.

Services entering details will recieve a login and password to update details as the situation changes.

Oursouthwest.com.au is active and functional now and will be fully functional to members of the public to access services by Monday.
