(Homelessness, Domestic Violence, Counselling, Support)
New or existing clients needing URGENT help, including homelessness and/or domestic violence support/counselling can ring 8392 3000 or 1300 694 961 (Fleurieu Domestic Violence Support).
If you do not have access to a phone, you can present at our offices and we will try to assist you.
Due to physical distancing requirements, we ask tenants to please PHONE your Housing Manager or call our office on 8275 8700 if you have any questions.
As usual, contact our Maintenance team on 8210 7010 if you have a maintenance issue or request.
At this stage, contractors can still attend your home to undertake maintenance, particularly emergency requests.
When attending a maintenance job at your home, all contractors are required to observe the Australian Government's physical distancing restrictions. This might include asking you questions before they begin work to ensure everyone's safety.
If you are concerned or have any questions, please speak with your Housing Manager.
In line with the Government’s release of a three-step plan on Friday, May 8, to ease COVID restrictions, our Community Centres can reopen. However, capacity is limited to 10 people on site at one time. As a result, attendance at our centre will be managed by our staff to ensure everyone’s safety.
We will be waiting for Step 2 before we can look to recommence our programs in person.
