Information about COVID-19 - Update 22nd December 2020

Outlook has returned to normal operation but with the necessary health measures around COVID-19.

Disability Gateway

The Disability Information Helpline has now transitioned to the Disability Gateway. People with disability can contact the Disability Gateway about COVID-19 issues and speak to someone who understands their needs about disability-specific matters. The Disability Gateway number (1800 643 787) is the same as the Disability Information helpline number, so there will be no disruption of service or inconvenience for people with disability.

More information about the Disability Gateway, as well as a range of accessible COVID-19 resources, is available at www.disabilitygateway.gov.au

The Disability Gateway is for all Australians with disability, whether they are a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participant or not.
