Are your clients facing problems with Centrelink after the floods?

We’re joining forces with our colleagues at Northern Rivers Community Legal Centre to run training sessions for community workers in the Northern Rivers area. The sessions will cover:

  • Problems with Centrelink and how Welfare Rights Centre can help
  • Centrelink issues with assets, particularly for those who’ve received insurance payouts, have had to move out of their home, have sold their home,or are part of the NSW Government’s buy-back scheme
  • Centrelink and NSW Government domestic violence payments & services
  • Assistance for clients at risk of eviction from pods and other emergency housing

We’ll also make sure there is time for public discussion and private questions.

  • Tues 23 May   Lismore
  • Wed 24 May   Ballina
  • Thurs 25 May  Tweed
