Our response to COVID-19

March 2020: Our responsibility to you

Your wellbeing is our main concern. We want to do all that we can to ensure your safety, and the safety of all of our friends and family, during this time of uncertainty brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are therefore acting on the latest Australian Government advice and postponing all our events until further notice. This includes the Remembrance Bicycle Ride, the Kokoda Trek, and Family Day. All Local Area Lunches around the state until that date have been cancelled.

We have not reached this decision lightly, but we take our responsibilities very seriously. It is the duty of all members of the community to do what we can to slow the spread of this pandemic, and to not put anyone at risk.

The situation continues to change, and we are following all the updates. Watch this page or follow us on social media for the latest news.

Stay Connected

These are strange times. There's no doubt about that. But the good news is that we're all in this together. And together we are stronger than any one of us alone.

Just because we've cancelled some events doesn't mean we’re not here for you. Our Community Support Team and BACKUP for Life team are reaching out to check in and offer support. If you need help, or if you know somebody who does, please get in touch.

And if you're not connected with us on social media, perhaps now is the time. We can't chat over a cup of tea, but we can definitely chat online. Reach out. Let us know how you're doing. Together, we'll come through this.
