From Wednesday 25th March, all Presbyterian Support Otago's Family Works staff from our sites in Dunedin, Ranfurly, Alexandra, Wanaka, Queenstown and Balclutha will commence working remotely.
All face to face appointments will temporarily cease, including both home and office visits. This includes both our YouthGrow and Stepping Stones services and all group programmes e.g. Incredible Years, Harakeke, Growing Taller, and Grandies.
All of our staff have access to phones, emails and other mobile technology so will be maintaining regular contact with our clients and whanau that we support. We know how important it is to feel connected and supported and we will continue to support you in this way for the next 4 weeks and until the current government restrictions are lifted.
We will continue to post updates on our PSO website and Facebook page to keep you updated and will also post resources and tips to help support you and your whanau through this time.
These are challenging times, but you’re not alone.
If you need urgent support, including food bank and/or social work support in Dunedin, Balclutha and Oamaru please call us on 477-7116. For Ranfurly, Alexandra, Cromwell and Roxburgh please phone 0508 397 2638.
For Queenstown please call 0508 392 5392.
For Upper Clutha 0508 399 2625.
If you are worried about yourself, your family or others please remember you can call or text the government funded free and confidential counselling service on 1737 at any time (day or night) to speak to a trained counsellor.
Be kind, be strong and take care.
Presbyterian Support Otago works for a fair, just and caring community.
