New program to help locals fill out forms
WHITSUNDAY residents who have trouble filling in forms or applications are encouraged to seek out assistance through the new Form Help program at the Whitsunday Neighbourhood Centre (WNC).
The program provides confidential assistance filling in, understanding and gathering supporting documentation to help people in completing forms and applications.
WNC executive officer Mike Peippo said there was a growing demand for this type of assistance in the local community.
“We have recognised a need in the community for someone to assist people in completing various forms from rental applications through to superannuation forms,” he said.
“Some people have poor literacy skills, a disability or limited knowledge of the subject and the Form Help program aims to assist them when they need a form or application completed.”
The Form Help program starts next Tuesday, Mach 25 and be available every Tuesday and Thursday from 11am-1pm at the Whitsunday Neighbourhood Centre in Hazelwood Crescent, Cannonvale.
