Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Update 29th April 2020 

At the Burdekin Association, we are taking all necessary precautions to protect the health and safety of our staff and the young people we support.

In line with government guidelines, we are limiting face-to-face contact and have moved to working remotely.

Such is the nature of our service, we also need to ensure that our clients are continuing to get full support, so most aspects of our service remain business as usual while we also keep our clients and staff safe.

We are closely following Australian Government and Department of Health guidelines and have worked hard to ensure that all clients and staff are updated with the latest information.

We are taking all necessary measures to protect the health and safety of our staff while ensuring our vital work with young people continues.

Can I still contact you if your teams are working from home?

Absolutely – please phone 02 8976 1777 or email:
