In accordance with government directives about the current COVID-19 outbreak, Foundation House has made the difficult decision to close our offices to external visitors during the Victorian lockdown.

Our offices will be closed from Friday 28 May and we plan to re-open on Monday 7 June.

We remain operational and will continue to deliver services in this challenging COVID-19 environment.

Our core commitments are: 

  • To keep delivering high-quality services to our clients and their communities 
  • To continue delivering our suite of programs by utilising innovative modalities and resources 
  • To safeguard the health and wellbeing of our staff 
  • To contribute to the wider community effort in reducing the transmission rate of COVID-19.
