We are here to help
Normally, we are open for both drop in or phone support.
Currently, due to a lack of qualified volunteers we are asking people, if they can, to ring us on 5986-1285. Note: calls from public phones are now free.
As we transition back to face to face interviews there will still be Covid-19 pandemic restrictions designed to keep everyone safe. If you are unwell do not come to the centre, please ring instead. If you do come to the centre please wear a mask, observe social distancing of 1.5 metres and sanitise if you are in the building. If you cannot do these things we would prefer that you ring for support instead.
Call us on 5986 1285
Drop in or ring Monday to Friday | 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
