The Federal Government Mobile Service Centre is visiting the Mid West, including towns from Leeman to Mingenew, to offer locals in Durack access to government payments and services.
The Mobile Service Centre will visit the following towns:

Mingenew – Thursday July 30, from 9 am to 2:30 pm, located opposite the Bakery, Midlands Road
The Mobile Service Centre offers a wide range of services to meet the changing needs of rural and regional communities.
The centre is staffed by experienced specialist officers who provide friendly face-to-face service, information and support tailored to each community.
Member for Durack Melissa Price said this is a great opportunity for people to get in contact with someone regarding a number of issues such as new claims for a wide range of Centrelink payments and updating customer information.
“Staff will be able to assist with things such as provide information on how financial matters may impact on Centrelink payments, outline rural payment entitlements for eligible farmers and information on Child Support payment and service options,” Ms Price.
“A social worker will be in attendance and a staff member from the Australian Taxation Office will also be available to assist individual and small business taxpayers with advice and information about tax and superannuation.”
