Our response to the Coronavirus pandemic

The good news is we are open for business. We continue to deliver our services whilst taking into account the Australian Government’s daily Social Distancing and Health advice. Our primary focus is on trying to strike a balance between the right of our clients to a continuity of service and the right of our staff to a safe working environment. Please keep yourself and those you care about safe and virus free.

Our commitment to eliminating discrimination

Our disability access and inclusion plan is registered with the Australian Human Rights Commission under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992.
