People in the Orana region will have easy access to essential government services, with the Mobile Service Centre Desert Rose on the road over the next few weeks.
Federal Member for Parkes Mark Coulton said the Mobile Service Centre will be visiting Cobar, Warren, Trangie and Narromine, following stops in Coonamble and Gilgandra last week.
“It’s important that communities in rural and remote areas can access essential government services easily and I’m pleased to see this mobile service return to the Orana region, providing locals with the support they need, no matter where they live,” Mr Coulton said.
“There will be friendly, specialist staff available, who are ready to assist with Centrelink claims, Medicare registrations, and a number of other essential government services.
“I encourage families to jump on board Desert Rose while it’s in town and find out what support is available to them.”
Desert Rose is one of three trucks in the Mobile Service Centre fleet operated by Services Australia. Mobile Service Centres have travelled more than 970,000 kilometres since 2006 and have assisted more than 165,000 customers in more than 5,300 communities. Staff have also assisted more than 20,000 people affected by natural disasters.
All of the services provided on Desert Rose are offered with strict COVID-19 safety precautions in place.
