Return to face-to-face Servicing

Fact sheet

Participant factsheet

Changes to servicing

From Tuesday, 9 March 2021, your services will return to face-to-face.  This means that, if required by your provider, you should attend appointments, activities, other services and training, in-person. 

Your provider may contact you shortly to let you know if there is anything you need to do.  Meeting with your provider face-to-face will be a great opportunity to talk about potential employment, education and training opportunities in your local area. 

If you have a valid reason to not attend face-to-face services, such as a health or COVID-19 related issue, please contact your provider.

Face-to-face servicing

Your Transition to Work provider will make sure that all face-to-face appointments and activities are delivered in a COVID-safe way and meet local health guidelines and advice for your area.  They are also required to have a COVID-Safe plan at all times.

When attending face-to-face servicing, you must follow all COVID-19 related procedures put in place by your provider, host organisation, training provider, or other organisation/venue.

We also recommend that you follow safety instructions to protect you and those around you, such as:

  • wearing a face mask or covering where required or where physical distancing is not possible;
  • maintaining physical distancing where possible
  • download the COVIDSafe app, and
  • washing or sanitising your hands prior to, during and after attending any appointment or activity

If you are sick, have been to a recent COVID-19 hotspot or have been told to self-isolate by health authorities you must not attend your appointment, activity or training in person. You must also tell your provider who can advise you about requesting a temporary exemption from mutual obligation requirements. You can also contact Services Australia or your provider for information about exemptions.

At any time, where face-to-face delivery is not permitted or otherwise restricted by the relevant state or territory government, your provider will still provide you with support via phone and online.
