COVID-19 update – the Centre is here to help

The ACT Government has announced extensive shut down measures that apply from 23 March 2020.

The Centre has moved to close down its physical offices in line with this direction. However, we are not ceasing services over this time.

We know women will be affected by COVID-19 and the measures taken to respond it, particularly lock down measures.

The Centre will be focused on supporting ongoing clients and providing urgent legal advice and assistance to women in relation to family and employment law matters. We will be prioritising women who are most at risk, in coordination with our partners in the legal assistance and women’s sectors.

If you need help the Centre’s phone line is open and we are still taking referrals.

Please be aware we are still making changes to our phone lines. If you leave a message or send us an email we will get back to you.

We will keep working with our partners and supported to ensure we can keep delivering an essential service to women in Canberra over the coming weeks.
