Help on hand for res­i­dents

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News - Tari Jef­fers

South West res­i­dents will to­mor­row have a one-stop shop to ad­dress most govern­ment, em­ploy­ment and life­style needs as part of the in­au­gu­ral South­ern Forests Com­mu­nity Ser­vices Expo.

More than 30 ser­vice providers, in­clud­ing De­part­ment of Trans­port, Tel­stra, Bankwest, South West Abo­rig­i­nal Med­i­cal Ser­vice and South Re­gional TAFE will be rep­re­sented at the expo.

Man­jimup Com­mu­nity Re­source Cen­tre ac­counts ad­min­is­tra­tor Emma Lindquist said the expo would pro­vide peo­ple with the op­por­tu­nity to ad­dress govern­ment ser­vice is­sues, em­ploy­ment path­ways, le­gal mat­ters, fines en­force­ment and bank­ing.

“It will meet at least one need of each per­son that comes along,” she said.

“Bring as much in­for­ma­tion as you can, such as your pass­port, birth cer­tifi­cate, driver’s li­cence and proof of ad­dress to make sure you are helped as ef­fec­tively as pos­si­ble.”

Ms Lindquist said it was an hon­our to have so many ser­vice providers come to­gether for the expo.

“It shows they ap­pre­ci­ate what we do in the re­gion to as­sist peo­ple,” she said.

“This is not only for peo­ple liv­ing in Man­jimup, any­one liv­ing in the South West is wel­come to come along.”

This is the first time the expo will be held in Man­jimup but sim­i­lar ex­pos have been held in Bun­bury and Col­lie to great suc­cess, ac­cord­ing to Ms Lindquist.

The expo will be held at Man­jimup Home and Com­mu­nity Well­ness Cen­tre from 10.30am to 1.30pm to­mor­row.
