The City of Casey's three Youth Information Centres, including Hampton Park, Narre Warren and Cranbourne have been temporarily closed until further notice.

Needle Exchange Program

The Needle Exchange Program has been modified due to the temporary closure of Casey's Customer Service Centres.

For the foreseeable future, this program will only be a sharps container provision service.

If you have a full container we ask that you hold on to these until business resumes as normal.  

We can provide new containers, however, we ask that when you require one that you phone Customer Service and an operator will coordinate a time with you for one of Environmental Health officers to drop this at your home.  

Family Day Care (FDC)

The City of Casey is making changes to support services such as Family Day Care.

Families who use this service need to comply with new rules to make sure that your child(ren), the other children in the group and your educator stay healthy. 

If your child is unwell please keep them at home and let your educator know.

If you have returned to Australia from overseas you must self-isolate for 14 days, and only if the self-isolation period is observed and your child is in full-health, may they attend their Family Day Care sessions. 

Your FDC Educator will need to restrict visitors, including Occupational Therapists, unless essential. Please check with your educator for more information.

School aged children can attend Family Day Care if they are not attending school. Check with your FDC Educator if they have capacity for your child. Kinder children who are not attending their normal kinder can also attend Family Day Care and they will still qualify for Child Care Subsidy. 

For further information on FDC, you can contact your usual educator, or the City of Casey via our call centre.

Public Immunisation Sessions

The City of Casey is continuing to deliver public immunisation sessions. We recommend you regularly check our immunisations website page for updates, as a number of changes has been made to ensure the safety of community members and staff.
