TURA MARRANG LIBRARY - Thursday 19th May 2022 11:00am - 12:15pm

Would you like to hear from a Legal Aid NSW lawyer about making complaints and disputing decisions made by government agencies? Decisions made by government agencies and services like Centrelink or health services can have a major impact on you. Hear from a Legal Aid NSW lawyer about how to make complaints and dispute decisions, including who can help if you can't resolve the situation yourself. 

Join our webinar presentation "Navigating the System - complaints and disputes with government agencies" @ Tura Marrang Library
