Fees and Charges
While many of our programs are government funded and therefore free to clients, others do require payment. If you do need to pay fees, we will discuss prices with you before providing services and set them out clearly in a Service Agreement. We will also provide you with regular invoices and statements to assist you to manage payment for our services. If you have difficulty paying your fees for any reason, we encourage you to discuss this with a staff member.
Work Health and Safety
Krurungal is committed to providing services in a safe and healthy environment. Work Health and Safety (WHS) is the responsibility of all Krurungal staff, volunteers, clients, families, carers and visitors. We ask that you report any hazards or risks you become aware of and act in a way that protects yours and others’ health and safety when visiting our office or participating in our services.
