We are constantly working to reduce waiting times and barriers to accessing our services. Despite this, there is usually a waiting period for an initial assessment. During the waiting period, our team will be working on processing the application and liaising with the referring agent and other settings where the client has received a service. For up to date estimates of waiting times, contact us on Freephone 1800 400 478
