The trend of more government services going online means no queues, better hours and a way for the community to take control of the services they receive but it can also be daunting for first time users.
Every Tuesday during November, a friendly and helpful member of the Department of Human Services will be available from 10.30am at Lithgow Library to explain the range of services they offer and the many ways in which to conduct business online. These services include Centrelink, Medicare, Child Support, eHealth Record System, Jobsearch, Department of Veteran Affairs, National Disability Insurance Scheme, Australian Taxation Office and My Aged Care.
“With so many government services available online and the push to use the internet to access them, this initiative is a wonderful way to introduce our community to the self-service option,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Maree Statham.
Providing a range of quality exhibitions and community programs that offer educational and social opportunities for all members of the community is part of Council’s Caring for the Community Strategy in the Community Strategic Plan 2026.
