In line with Government directions on the COVID-19 pandemic, WAYJO cancelled all public activities and rehearsals from 23 March until May 31, 2020.

Tickets for all cancelled events will be refunded.

To maintain required physical distancing, WAYJO staff are not in the office at present, but working from home and still available via email.

If you are concerned about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we encourage you to visit health.wa.gov.au for tips on how best to avoid infection or spread, plus take a look at the mental health resources and support available from Beyond Blue.

This is a difficult time for WAYJO, and we would greatly appreciate it, if you are able, to make a donation to WAYJO to help us weather the current situation. To support our work, please visit wayjo.com/support

We are looking forward to being back with all of our programs later this year, and hope that you continue to be part of our family of supporters and friends, and see you at an event in the future.
