Visiting the Centre people requiring support and coming into the Centre must follow hygiene guidelines and social distancing (recommended 1.5m physical distance from another person). QR code or manual sign-in is required, and masks must be worn. Masks are available onsite.

Volunteers registered volunteers on the roster are asked to not attend your shift if you are feeling unwell, or have recently visited a location or exposure site requiring you to isolate. At this time only registered, regular volunteers are able to attend their shifts due to WHS regulations, and safefty checks including police checks and working with vulnerable people checks.
