NSW Fair Trading visited Gunnedah as part of a series of free regional engagement seminars for local businesses, residents and community organisations.
About 100 local residents attended the events which aim to bring government services directly to regional communities.
A well-attended event at Gunida Gunya Gunnedah with local Aboriginal community members discussed emerging issues in the community, including how to keep safe from consumer harms, assistance from Revenue NSW in paying outstanding fines, and various budget saving measures available through Service NSW.
A forum for community workers at the Salvation Army centre revealed how communities can have a say in upcoming legislative reforms as well as an overview of NSW Fair Trading services.
The forum was also an opportunity for community workers to network with Fair Trading staff and other Government agencies, including Service NSW, Services Australia and Revenue NSW.
The agenda included “Let’s Talk Gunnedah” about local issues and emerging trends for consumers and workers and “Have Your Say” community consultations.
Fair Trading also delivered an Incorporated Association Seminar at night to highlight obligations to committees and members of Incorporated Associations. These seminars are about bringing Fair Trading services into local regional communities to share consumer rights messages and listen to local community issues.To order photos from this page click here
