How SASS can support and inform you during the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak

27 April 2020

In these uncertain times we want to assure you that we are working on ways to stay connected with you and provide support and information during this Coronavirus outbreak.  It is a challenging time for us all and it is important that we all stay as healthy, well and supported as we can.

We encourage you to visit www.healthdirect.gov.au for the latest advice, information and resources about COVID-19.

Service update

SASS will continue to provide as many of our usual services as we can. However, as the health and wellbeing of our staff and clients is our priority we are not currently having face-to-face appointments. We are instead providing all of our usual services (enquiries, information and support, crisis services, Redress Support Services and counselling) over the phone. We are continuing to accept new referrals as usual and our crisis line remains available for anyone who wishes to access it - 1800 697 877.

Our aim is to continue to deliver all our counselling, crisis and support services - whether these are delivered onsite or over the phone - with as little disruption as possible. Our services, will as always, be delivered with our usual high degree of professionalism, privacy and confidentiality.

If you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to contact us on (03) 6231 0044.
