Important Information

 FDS Update regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

 As FDS is a National organisation, we operate across a number of jurisdictions.

 We work with the information being provided to our workers in each state regarding

 re-opening of groups and courses.  Therefore, not all States will re-open at the same time.

 As our groups/courses/events re-open, our website will be the most up-to-date source of accurate information.

If you require support please call our Support Line:

 24/7 Telephone Line: 1300 368 186

Or book an online 1 to 1 with a FDS worker through Sage.fm

We have protocols in place to ensure yours and our staff safety. Each venue determines the size of our groups and workshops. During this difficult time, if you are seeking any clarification please call the facilitator.

 We apologise for any inconvenience but assure you that as soon as we are able to, it is our priority to resume all our groups and courses on a regular, ongoing basis.

 We appreciate your patience and wish everyone the very best during this period of uncertainty.
