Cowra Council are helping to run a free information day for the indigenous community with the “Good Service Mob” on Wednesday.
The Good Service Mob is a NSW Government-initiative aimed at offering advice to Indigenous community members on consumer rights, discrimination, legal issues, and community services.
Cowra Council is continuing its support of Indigenous initiatives for Cowra with this Indigenous Services Expo, Cowra Mayor, Councillor Bill West said.
“The Cowra Indigenous Services Expo demonstrates the need for us getting information to our residents” Cr West said.
“This forum is timely for Cowra’s Aboriginal community following our very positive NAIDOC Week.”
Cowra Council will also host a special power-saving display for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander residents at the event including simple, practical advice on how to save money on electricity bills. The Office of Environment & Heritage is also supporting the initiative specifically-focussed on Indigenous communities.
Indigenous residents are encouraged to attend the Expo to find out more about the consumer services available in our town. Stalls will also be available providing information about Cowra community Aboriginal services.
The Forum begins at 10am on Wednesday, 22 August
at the Cowra Civic Centre with a free lunch included. For more information, contact Lisa Robertson at Cowra Council on 6340 2069 or Caine Carroll at the Anti-Discrimination Board on 9268 5541.
