Text Searching the Directory

Search using text 

  • To perform a search using text, type in the language, community, service type, location, suburbs, geographical regions (i.e North West Metropolitan) or the name of the organisation into the search box at the middle center of the page and click the "FIND" button.  
  • If you are unsure of the spelling, type in as many keywords as you wish and the search results will show you all close matches 
  • If your search returns a large number of results across a number of categories, search results can be refined by selecting one of the options from the drop - down menu and/or selecting a particular location, community or service type. 

Drop down menu 

  • The drop down menu to refine searches is located at the top left of the search page.
  • The drop down box can be further expanded to display more elements and will have 'plus' or 'minus' icons next to them. Clicking the 'plus' icon next to these units will display the lower level elements. Clicking the 'minus' icon will contract the list. 
There is no default setting for the search function. You need to type in at least one keyword in the search box in order to generate any result.
