The Services Australia mobile service centre will be making its way through the Mid West for 11 days throughout June to provide a range of services for regional and rural communities.

The van named Blue Gum, acts as a travelling link to Medicare, Centrelink and the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.

The project increases accessibility for those in the regions that otherwise find it difficult to access the services.

Mobile service centres are 20-tonne trucks operated by staff from Services Australia, providing regional and rural Australians with face-to-face support with Centrelink claims, Medicare registration and accessing other online services.
