Country, Culture, People, Future


Welcome to YMAC’s dedicated COVID-19 Coronavirus webpage.  We have created this page to provide some quick links to trusted sources of government and community information, with a focus on Aboriginal people and communities and native title.

YMAC has also been pleased to be part of community-driven action, through the REcov19ER emergency response group and associated web-page in the Pilbara. We urge people to visit their webpage for further information and resources.

YMAC working from home

YMAC offices were partially closed from March 18, with staff working from home until 1 June 2020.  This arrangement changed, with the success of broader government and community actions to combat the virus. Staff returned to the offices from July 20, but offices remain closed to external visitors until the State Government introduces Phase 5 of eased restrictions.

Be assured that YMAC will continue to deliver services.  Staff continue to be available by phone or email throughout the closure and are adapting new ways to meet and maintain connections with our valued clients throughout to minimise disruption to services.

At all times the health, safety and wellbeing of our clients, staff and the broader community is our utmost priority.
