Bring your bills for free advice

Local community organisation, Coast Community Connections, is teaming up with St Vincent de Paul Society and the Energy & Water Ombudsman NSW (EWON) to bring a Community Expo and Bring Your Bills Day for residents.

To be held at the Peninsula Community Centre on Thursday 27 July, the free event will offer local community members the opportunity to receive reliable advice about energy and water bills, fines, legal concerns and tenancy issues. 

Other services attending on the day include Centrelink, Legal Aid, Pacific Housing, State Debt Recovery, Service NSW, Seniors Rights Service, Ability Links and many more.

In addition to information about energy rebates, consumers can also make sure that they are receiving any Centrelink payments that they are entitled to and receiving all support that is available to them from the wide range of community services.

Coast Community Connections’ Families and Community Group Manager, Emma Gilby, said that the event will provide consumers with information about government and community services of which they may be unaware.

“There are many free services, rebates and payments that are available to local residents and this event will give consumers the opportunity to gather all of that information in one place,” said Ms Gilby.

“Locals seeking assistance in understanding various bills and fines are encouraged to make a personal appointment with stallholders for one on one advice, breaking down the components of their bill and identifying any rebates for which they may be eligible.

“After the success of the Bring Your Bills event last year, Coast Community Connections is proud to continue supporting this crucial community service,” she concluded.

Attendees can book an appointment by contacting Coast Community Connections on     02 4341 9333 or just drop in on the day with their bills. 

The Community Expo & Bring Your Bills Day will run from 9:00am to 3:00pm on Thursday 27 July 2017. For bookings and enquiries, contact Coast Community Connections on 02 4341 9333.
