Important message – COVID-19

UPDATED 23 March 2020

As the direction of the COVID-19 pandemic changes daily, we understand it can be a challenge to balance everything that comes with managing a condition like diabetes. We want to assure you that we are doing everything we can to future proof service delivery and ongoing care for our members, community and of course our staff.

We have already taken measures to reduce the spread of this virus by cancelling all of our events, seminars and education sessions up until 30 June 2020 and implemented working from home for some staff.

In light of the events of the past weekend and the actions by every state government for lockdown and/or border closure, we will be closing our office, 159 Sir Donald Bradman Drive, Hilton from Wednesday 25 March 2020, 5.00pm for an indefinite period of time.

How will this affect you?

The team at Diabetes SA remains strongly committed to supporting you and so we have devised ways to ensure we can continue to deliver the best service possible while keeping our members, community and staff safe and well. All our staff will continue to work but from their own homes using technology to keep us connected and engaged with you.
