Uniting Communities is monitoring and responding to the current situation regarding COVID-19.

As a response to the current COVID-19 situation, we have enacted a number measures across our organisation to protect our clients, staff and the communities we work with.

With the news released by the State Government on Friday 20 November, we have made some changes to our operations that reflect the easing of restrictions. As more information comes to hand, further updates may be made to our sites and service delivery.

We will continue to monitor and follow the guidance of state and federal authorities in relation to COVID-19, and provide you with any updates as they arise. Please refer to this page for all the latest updates and information.

We thank you for your cooperation and patience during this rapidly changing time.
