Disability Information Helpline for people with disability
Do you have a question about coronavirus (COVID-19)? Do you need help because things have changed?
You can contact the Disability Information Helpline to talk about your concerns in relation to coronavirus (COVID-19), for example if:
your support worker has not turned up
your provider has stopped services
it’s hard for you to get food, groceries, medications or other essential items
someone close to you has symptoms of coronavirus
you are feeling really upset
anything else is worrying you.
To contact the Disability Information Helpline, please call 1800 643 787.
The Helpline is available Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm (AEST). It is not available on national public holidays.
