As COVID-19 once again poses a challenge and many states go into lockdown, it's important to look after yourself - physically, emotionally, spiritually and financially. If you are struggling, reach out for support and do it early. Here you will find useful COVID-19 information and links to available supports. 

Please continue to follow health orders and keep in contact with your manager for any changes which may impact your volunteering. Please ensure if your contact details change to let your manager know; this will help us better communicate with you.
