TASC is pleased to advise that we will gradually be able to offer a return to face-to-face appointments. We can make this change because over time, the Government is reducing the social distancing restrictions that it put in place during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
Throughout the coronavirus time, TASC has continued to offer our full range of legal, advocacy and social services. Our services have been available by phone, email and videoconference.
As we return to meeting with you in person, you will still have the option of phone appointments. We will be checking to see if you have any coronavirus or cold and flu symptoms before booking an appointment, and if you have any concerns about your health.
The last few months have been hard on everyone. The team at TASC is here to help.
RETURN TO FACE-TO-FACE APPOINTMENTS
Appointments will be available at our offices in Toowoomba, Ipswich and Roma. Please call 4616 9700 to make a booking.
Please be assured that we will practice strict hygiene and physical distancing in line with government guidelines. You might notice a few differences in the way that our offices are set up so if you have any questions, please ask our friendly team.
- We will follow the practices set out by Safe Work Australia and other government bodies. For example, we will hold all meetings with our clients in an area that allows 4 square metres of space for each person.
- Our staff will keep a minimum of 1.5 metres between themselves and you, and we ask you to follow this guideline within our offices.
- The TASC team will practice good hand cleaning hygiene and sanitation, and we will sanitise rooms after each interview with a client.
- We ask that you also follow the hygiene practices recommended by Queensland Health: for example, covering your mouth when you cough, sanitising your hands when you come into our office. These measures are recommended so that we can preserve the health and wellbeing of all clients, community members and the TASC team.
Your safety and health is our priority. If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to your regular TASC team contact, or call our office on 07 4616 9700. You can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you prefer.
