DISABILITY INFORMATION HELPLINE

DISABILITY INFORMATION HELPLINE

The Department of Social Services wants to ensure that people with disability are aware of the supports available to them during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially given the developments in Sydney and the impacts across NSW and Australia.

We encourage disability organisations to share information with their networks about the Disability Information Helpline (1800 643 787). The Disability Information Helpline provides information and referrals for people with disability who need help because of COVID-19. The Helpline is available from Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm (AEDT) by calling 1800 643 787 and can refer people to advocacy, counselling, and other supports they may need. Please note that the Helpline does not operate on weekends or public holidays.

More information about the Helpline, as well as a range of accessible COVID-19 resources, is available at www.dss.gov.au/disabilityhelp.

The attached Stakeholder Kit includes a range of useful information, including some general social media wording (and images) that you may wish to use, such as:

Facebook Do you have disability? Are you currently in New South Wales, or have recently visited, and have concerns about coronavirus? Support is available to you.

Call the Disability Information Helpline on 1800 643 787 or visit www.dss.gov.au/disabilityhelp
