ADACAS Service during Covid 19

27th March 2020

ADACAS continues to comply with the restrictions that are coming into effect due to COVID-19. Because of this almost all of our staff are now working off-site. This should not affect the quality of the service we provide, but it will have some impact on how you contact us, and how we contact you.

At present the quickest way for us to respond to you is via email. Therefore if you are able to, please send an email to adacas@adacas.org.au with any queries you may have.

If you are a service provider or you would like to refer a friend of family member to our service and have received permission to do so, we ask that you complete the referral form attached with as much detail as possible and send this through to adacas@adacas.org.au

You can still reach ADACAS by calling (02) 6242 5060. We will sometimes be able to respond to your call immediately, but often we will need to take your details and have one of our staff call you back.

During busy times your call may divert to our voicemail. If this happens please leave a message and we will be able to respond to you quickly.

In all cases we endeavour to respond to your email or phone call within 2 business days.

If you have an emergency please contact ‘000’
