Zero Tolerance

At Short Street Centre we strive to treat all clients equally and with care and respect. Whilst we will try to meet your needs and see you on time there may be occasions when this is not possible.

We ask that you are patient and respectful to staff, other clients and visitors at all times.

Our service has adopted the NSW Health Zero Tolerance policy. Anyone displaying aggressive, threatening, intimidating or abusive behaviour (including racist, sexist, homophobic or transphobic comments) towards staff, other clients or visitors will be asked to leave.
