Mobile Service Centre to deliver greater access to services in Maranoa

November 11, 2020

A new Mobile Service Centre will make its debut in Maranoa this month, providing rural residents a chance to easily access government services, Maranoa MP David Littleproud announced.

‘Blue Gum’ will soon hit the road in Queensland, to provide tailored Centrelink, Medicare and Child Support assistance to Australia’s rural and regional communities.

Mr Littleproud said Blue Gum will be welcomed by locals as it travels through Maranoa over the coming weeks.

“I encourage you to find out when and where you can access the Mobile Service Centre because it’s a great opportunity meet face-to-face with specialist staff without having to travel further afield,” Mr Littleproud said.

“Staff on board Blue Gum can assist locals with Centrelink claims, Medicare registrations and online services, providing more personalised or intensive support – it’s a great way to find solutions to problems and stay informed about any changes.

“You don’t need an appointment, and it’s free – so anyone who needs help or has a question should visit the team aboard Blue Gum.”

A COVID-safe plan has been implemented for the rollout of Blue Gum to ensure Mobile Service Centres remain safe for all customers and staff.
