How we are supporting you

Life Without Barriers remains totally committed to supporting you, and every other person who chooses our Mental Health services during the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. As your service provider, we understand just how important it is to have the choice to continue your support, as we adjust to the impact of the virus over the coming months.

So that we can continue to deliver the support you choose, we are making some adjustments to how we do some things in order to protect your health and wellbeing. This means that the staff who support you are practising good hygiene and more cleaning, as well as following advice from the Australian Government around access to facilities and social distancing, where possible.
