Coronavirus Awareness

In these changing times we continue to adapt how we support our clients and staff. There may be disruption to some services caused by COVID-19 restrictions and we make every effort to keep our clients informed of any changes. It is important to remember we all need to stay informed and follow the directions of Queensland Government.

During these times avoid unnecessary risks, maintain social distancing and infection control, and always ask for assistance if you need it.
