ISFAF office is not attended during ‘The Time of Corona’, but please don’t hesitate to contact us by calling 0425 723 746 if you have difficulty in accessing any meetings or would like information or just need to chat to someone.

We all need to work together.

Individuals who don’t have internet won’t have received this flier. They are likely to be the folk who have suffered the greatest isolation, so if you know someone who does not have internet,
please contact them, and/or let me have their details if you would like ISFAF to contact them. Many are not aware that they can participate in Zoom meetings without internet.

Please spread the message because those without internet are often the most lonely in our community. And finally – the same old message – please keep an eye on our website:

As soon as the need for physical distancing is eased, ISFAF will have lots of fun things planned for us to share.
