Information is sourced through all Government websites, this ensures we are constantly updated and are providing clients with accurate information.
In addition to the dissemination of information, additional support may be provided in the form of referral, advocacy or representation at appeal processes.
This activity represents an important part of our work and keeps us in touch with the issues that are of concern to local people. It is also an important medium for introducing local people to the wide range of available agencies and supports locally and within our centre.
***We also offer support to workers for understanding and dealing with their income tax and entitlements.
