Disability Information Helpline

Wed 6 May 2020
Disability Information Helpline

The Disability Information Helpline is available for people with disability who need help because of coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Helpline can help families, carers, support workers and services, too.

The Helpline is free, private and fact-checked.
 
People can contact the Disability Information Helpline on 1800 643 787 to talk about their concerns in relation to COVID-19. For example, people can call the Helpline if their support worker has not turned up or their provider has stopped services; or if it’s hard to get essential items like food or medications.
 
The Helpline can provide information, and refer people to advocacy, counselling and other supports.
 
The Helpline is available Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm (AEST) and Saturday and Sunday 9am to 7pm (AEST). It’s not available on national public holidays.
