Constituent Services

How can we help?

Many residents are unaware of the services available to them through their local member of Parliament. My office offers a range of services to the community. My electorate staff are only too pleased to assist you with any enquiries or concerns you may have.

Companion Cards

The Companion Card was developed to remove the financial barrier for people with disability who require lifelong attendant care support to participate at events, activities and venues. The National Companion Card brings together state and territory programs that enable eligible people with disability who require attendant care support to participate at venues and activities without incurring the cost of a second ticket for their companion. For further information go to http://www.companioncard.gov.au/
