Following the latest advice from the Victorian Government, Berry Street will temporarily close our offices from Friday 28 May, 2021. No visits or other activities can occur at our offices during this Lockdown. We will monitor government advice about when to open again which is hopefully soon.

Our services will continue to operate as we aim to respond to the needs of children, families and communities throughout Victoria.

Please contact your local Berry Street office if you have any questions.
