Changes to services: do you need support from the ASC?

The ASC is still here to help you. To seek services or support, please call us on (02) 9078 1900. You cannot come to the ASC at the moment without an appointment.

People who live in Sydney are now affected by stay-at-home orders:

This means you can only leave home for essential shopping (or picking up food), work (if you can’t work at home), education, healthcare or to get social services.

To ensure that we all stay safe from this very contagious strain of Covid-19 the ASC will provide most services and support by phone.

TO STAY SAFE

Please check the NSW Health list of Covid-19 case locations and follow all the advice if you have been to one of these places. 

Masks must be worn at all times in indoor public areas, everywhere in Sydney. 

If you need help understanding the advice, please call us on 9078 1900.

GENERAL SERVICES

For assistance and support please call us on 9078 1900 on Monday to Friday between 9-4pm.

Our friendly centre support volunteers will be available by calling the centre on 9078 1900. We can help with Opal cards, phone recharging and some other admin help too over the phone.

COMMUNITY LUNCHES

Community lunches will not be available during the Covid-19 lockdown period in Sydney.

HELP WITH EMPLOYMENT

FOODBANK

Please note that while Covid-19 health orders are in place, the ASC will not be home delivering food or have in-person food collection. You can still be supported if you need food and you will be contacted if you are already receiving food from us. If we don’t contact you, please call us on 9078 1900 to let us know you need help with food.
