Outreach Services

Mission Australia

Mission Australia provides an outreach service for gambling and financial counselling at Skead House Neighbourhood Centre each Friday. The challenges that their clients face are as much diverse as they are complex. Therefore, a holistic approach that looks at the client’s background and planning a specific needs strategy to suit the client is applied. Other issues such as domestic violence, mental health problems, intellectual disabilities, bankruptcy and liquidation may also be evident.


Tax Help

Australian Tax Office

Tax Help is a network of community volunteers who help people complete their tax returns during tax time. This is a free and confidential service. Volunteers are fully trained, accredited and supported by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

These volunteers are people from within the community who give up their time each year. They are not ATO staff, but they receive training and support from the ATO. Tax Help is suitable for people with simple tax affairs who earn around $50,000 a year or less. This service is available by appointment every year between July and October.
