A Mobile Service Centre is coming to Grenfell on Thursday, January 25.

The centre will be opposite the library in Main Street from 9.30am to 2pm.

The centre provides personalised access to government services, delivering Centrelink, Medicare and Child Support services to rural Australians.

Mobile Service Centres have delivered services to over 130,000 rural Australians and have travelled more than 700,000 kilometres in their decade on the road.

Minister for Human Services Michael Keenan said the Mobile Service Centres provide critical information, assistance and support to rural and regional Australians.

“The Mobile Service Centres reinforce the Coalition’s commitment to deliver the best service possible to all Australians, regardless of where they live,” Minister Keenan said.

Member for Riverina Michael McCormack said staff on board can help with a range of services, including lodging Centrelink claims, Medicare registrations, providing access to online services, and offering free hearing health checks.

“A Social Worker will be available on board for the entire trip to provide residents with information, support, and short term counselling if they are going through a difficult time,” Mr McCormack said.

The centre will be located at Quandialla on Tuesday, January 23 from 1pm until 3.30pm opposite the post office in Second Street.

On Wednesday, January 24 Greenethorpe will host the centre near the Memorial Hall in Main Road.
