We would like to update you on the evolving COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation.
Update as of 31 March 2020
We are continuing to provide essential services to our clients such as medical, counselling and advocacy support. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your appointment or our services, please contact us at 6330 5400.
Update as of 25 March 2020
Given the unprecedented impact of COVID-19, Womens Health & Family Services had to make the hard decision to cancel all our groups and crèche services from next week, commencing on 30 March 2020. This decision has not been made lightly but we have a duty of care to our clients, volunteers and staff as nothing is more important that the safety and wellbeing of all those we support and work with.
Rest assured that during this time we are taking extra preventative measures to keep our offices as safe as possible.
Thank you for your understanding and support as we manage this rapidly changing risk to our community.
We hope you all stay healthy and safe in these challenging times.

WHFS’ priority, as always, is for the wellbeing, health and safety of our employees, volunteers and clients. We are taking active measures to manage the COVID-19 risk as the virus continues to spread across communities within Australia.
Robust infection control practices continue to be in place for employees, volunteers and clients attending our offices.
We continue to monitor and closely follow the advice from health authorities.
We are asking that you do not visit any of our offices if:
- You have returned from overseas in the last 14 days.
- You have had contact with someone who has tested positively for COVID-19.
- You are experiencing flu-like symptoms such as:
- fatigue/muscle aches
- shortness of breath
If you are experiencing these symptoms please contact your GP practice or call our office on 6330 5400 for further advice.
Reducing the risk of COVID-19
We ask you to assist us during this time by:
- washing your hands and using hand sanitiser regularly
- coughing/sneezing into your elbow
- practice ‘social distancing’ and avoiding social physical contact with one another (eg avoiding shaking hands, linking arms or hugging)
We appreciate your support in helping us with our measures to reduce the risk of exposure to the virus.
