Dear valued clients,

The health, safety and wellbeing of our clients is, and always has been Bravehearts highest priority. The situation regarding the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) locally and around the world is changing daily. Considering the latest government directives in response to COVID-19, and in looking forward as far as is possible, we are making changes to the way we deliver our support services. Bravehearts have moved to a position of contactless service delivery. All regular sessions and support services will now be conducted via telephone and our E-Health platform.

Bravehearts will continue to provide counselling and support services to all existing and new clients.  

The decision to proceed in this way has been made to safeguard the health, safety and wellbeing of our clients, staff and that of the community. The service changes are temporary. We will advise you of further changes.

We continue to accept and action new referrals for all services. Anyone wanting to access our services can call Bravehearts on 1800 272 831. People can still be referred, by calling, or by filling out an online referral form. We anticipate having a significant online and telephone capability to support clients and the community through this time.

If you have any questions about the changes outlined above, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

We appreciate your understanding during this uncertain time.
