    Covid resources updated 16-1-2022

    We have added some new links under States and Territories that help further clarify what each is offering.

    Let’s hope the new strain (Omicron) does not mean more need to extra help into the future. These links are themselves always being updated by the relevant government and semi-government departments and agencies and other organisations.

    Centralising all these resources on our website means it’s easier for our clients to stay on top of what is available, which will also make it easier to take action and avoid missing out on initiatives that will help.
