Govt service centre on wheels to visit Tiaro on April 17
THE Australian Government Mobile Service Centre Kangaroo Paw will give people in Tiaro easy access to essential government payments and services in April.
The Mobile Service Centre will visit towns from Eidsvold to Kilcoy including Tiaro in the coming weeks and offer Centrelink and Medicare payments and services, child support information and hearing health checks.
Mobile service centre manager Tricia Florent said it was a travelling outreach service that shortened the distance between rural and regional communities and government services.
"It's a purpose-built service centre on wheels - equipped with the same technology as any Centrelink or Medicare service centre across the country," Ms Florent said.
"Onboard we offer a wide range of information and services, tailored to meet the needs of each community.
"The centre is staffed by experienced officers who are specialists in rural servicing and provide friendly face-to-face services."
The mobile service will visit Mayne St, Tiaro, on April 17 from 9am to 4pm.
