Victoria is once again entering a lockdown because of levels of COVID-19 in our community. It is on all of us to do what is needed to contain this outbreak and limit the time we spend in lockdown. 

Many of our services are considered essential and will continue to operate. This includes our early learning childcare centres and kindergartens, residential facilities, alcohol and other drug programs, support to those experiencing homelessness, family violence and those in need of emergency relief 

Our meal programs will be take-away only until the end of the lockdown. 

Our op-shops will be closed. 

Most of our other programs and services will continue to be available over the phone. 

Anyone coming to a Uniting location will be asked to wear a mask, register via QR code or the site register, practice hand hygiene and maintain physical distancing at all times. 

We understand how hard it is to return to lockdown and we will do our bit to make this time as short as possible. 

If you are struggling in any way, please reach out to a service such as Lifeline, which is on 13 11 14.
