Raising awareness and access in the Wheatbelt
15 March 2021
The Ombudsman raises awareness and accessibility in Northam and Merredin in the Wheatbelt Region, 29 to 31 March 2021
Now in its thirteenth year, the Regional Awareness and Accessibility Program is intended to ensure awareness and accessibility to the services of the office of the Ombudsman to regional and Aboriginal Western Australians.
The Program is coordinated with Ombudsman Western Australia, the Commonwealth Ombudsman, the Health and Disability Services Complaints Office and the Equal Opportunity Commission, and the latest visit will be conducted in Northam and Merredin in the Wheatbelt Region from 29 to 31 March 2021.
The Program includes an information stall and complaints clinics where members of the public can bring their concerns to us (that they have not been able to resolve directly with public authorities or providers of energy and water services), meetings with the Aboriginal community, and visits to, and liaison with, public authorities and community organisations.
