current lockdown 5th August 2021

We would like to reassure all of our valued Yacaaba Centre clients that we are taking every measure possible to protect both our staff and clients from the threat of COVID-19. Yacaaba Centre is registered as a COVID safe business.


The Yacaaba Centre will continue its service to all our current and past clients and members of the community in need as best as we can in these challenging and rapidly changing circumstances! 



We are also open to distribute hampers EXCEPT WEDNESDAYS.

Visitors and clients will not be permitted to enter the centre.

We want to make sure everybody is safe therefore our counsellors will be carrying out sessions via phone or video.  You will be contacted prior to your appointment requesting your preference.

To pick up a hamper, please ring the doorbell and take a step back and a staff member will be there shortly. It is important we keep a safe social distance of 2 metres. A phone call prior to picking up a hamper would be appreciated

We will keep you updated on any changes, please also check our Facebook page Yacaaba Centre

We require all staff, volunteers, students, clients and visitors to:

  • Be aware of the hotspots listed on the website Latest COVID-19 case locations in NSW and please follow the directives if you have been to a nominated place. Please ensure you have viewed the daily list before coming to the Centre so that you will not be disappointed.

  • Face masks are available to all staff, volunteers, students, clients and visitors.

  • Avoid contact with others by ‘physical distancing’ – stay more than 1.5 metres away from each other whenever possible.

  • Practice good hand hygiene: use hand sanitiser when you enter the premises and regularly use throughout the day, as well as hand washing.

  • Wipe workplace surfaces with disinfectant wipes before and after using equipment.


Due to the current risk of infection from COVID-19 during this pandemic, staff, volunteers, students, clients and visitors must not come to the Centre's premises if:

  • You or anyone you have been in close contact with has travelled to Sydney and identified surroundings in the last 14 days.
