Achieve Australia’s services are being impacted by the severe flooding in northern NSW. We are working directly with our clients, families and carers to keep everyone safe.
As of Monday afternoon, homes within our service were operating as normal but our staff are monitoring the situation closely. However, the flooding and road closures has disrupted some of our other service areas. We have paused our My Life Community and Lifestyle Day program for now and also our Community Participation drop-in support service. However, we have been able to assist drop-in support participants who needed help to leave their homes for a safer place until flood waters recede to do so.
Achieve has also developed contingency plans to take the appropriate action in the event of an extended power outage or if flood waters threaten homes within our service.
Our staff in the northern rivers have been talking to our clients and families. However, if you have questions or concerns, please get in touch by phoning, 02 6662 2333 or 1300 224438.
