Information & Education

The Information Service is available to anyone seeking information about HD and has been a trusted source of information to the community for over 45 years.

Access to this service is available through a number of different streams including our confidential telephone service. If you have a question or concern that you would like to discuss please contact us Monday to Friday during business hours.

Alternatively, we have a website that hosts up-to-date information relevant to our community, which can be accessed anytime, anywhere. Through our website, you can also send us an email if you have a question that isn’t answered by the details on our website.

Facebook and social media is another way in which information can be accessed. Through these platforms, we share details on HV events, campaigns, and research updates. If you have a question or would like to provide us with feedback, you can send us a private message.
