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.

We have protocols in place to ensure yours and our staff safety. Each state government determines the restrictions and our course dates are subject to change. During this difficult time, if you are seeking any clarification please call the volunteer coordinator.

 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, on-going basis.
