The Australian Government Mobile Service Centre Golden Wattle will hit the road to give people in Morgan easy access to essential government payments and services in October. This travelling outreach service shortens the distance between rural and regional communities and government services. In the 2016-17 financial year, Mobile Service Centre Crews visited 381 towns and helped over 11,000 people.
Minister for Human Services Alan Tudge said the Mobile Service Centre ensures people in rural communities are connected with the latest government services.
“Golden Wattle is a truck set up as an office, custom-built with the same technology as any other Service Centre that delivers Medicare or Centrelink payments and services, including access to self-service facilities. It is wheelchair accessible and has a soundproof room where staff can conduct free hearing health checks,” Minister Tudge said.
Federal Member for Barker Tony Pasin said the Mobile Service Centre will visit Morgan to offer Centrelink and Medicare payments and services, Child Support information and hearing health checks.
“I hope that Morgan locals will make the most of Golden Wattle visiting the area – it is a wonderful, free service,” Mr Pasin said.
“There’s no need to book an appointment, simply stop by the truck.”
The truck will be located in front of the Council Office, Fourth Street Morgan on Thursday 19 October between 9am and 2pm.
