New member assistance program
The CFA member assistance program is now available 24 hours a day and has a new phone number – 1300 795 711.
The program has been upgraded to provide a more tailored service for CFA members and their immediate families.
Closer links with other CFA support services such as peer and chaplaincy support and compensation programs, as well as short-term counselling support across the state, will make it easier for members to access the support they need.
Around 100 counselling sessions are taken up each year by our people and their immediate families about a range of issues including relationships, parenting advice, depression, anxiety, addiction and trauma.
Information cards will be distributed through regional offices, peer support coordinators and sent with the spring edition of Brigade magazine to promote the new 1300 795 711 number.
Contact the organisational wellbeing team on 9262 8836 for further information about the program or other wellbeing initiatives.
