VMIAC’s offices will be closed over the holiday period, between 1.00pm the 24th of December and the 4th of January. As a result services such as our Advocacy, NDIS, and CHECK-IN will not be available during this time.
Though our staff will be taking a much needed break to spend some time with their families and loved ones, we also want to ensure that you, our community, are still able to access needed support over the holidays. As a result we have compiled this list of services providing meals, social connections, or general support over the following weeks.
Do note that a lot of these services may be operating at reduced capacity over the holiday period, or may only be open on non-public holidays. Furthermore, there may be delays in service, including those at VMIAC, in the early weeks of January as some staff take well earned additional leave.
