Like lots of other organisations, we are getting to grips with what COVID-19 means for us.

We operate hundreds of programs across two states, so it’s inevitable that somewhere, our services will be directly affected.

We are closely following all advice coming from state and federal governments.

We are cancelling all non-essential events that bring together people from different locations.

We are also looking into how we can keep open services that people rely on, such as emergency relief.

As this situation develops, we will likely have to make changes to some of our services or locations. If this will affect you directly, the local team will be in touch to let you know what the arrangements are. They are also the best people to go to if you have questions about your service.

We’ll keep monitoring the situation and following the advice coming from the authorities.

Our main message to everyone is to keep doing your bit to limit the spread of the virus. Wash your hands regularly and use sanitiser when you can. Avoid big groups. If you can, travel on public transport at off-peak times. Think about the people in your community that need more support at this time, such as those who are staying at home or that are more vulnerable to the virus.
