Customers in Forbes have embraced the community’s new Service NSW Centre, with more than 270 people coming through the doors since it opened on December 6.

NSW Nationals Duty MLC for Orange Sam Farraway and Parliamentary Secretary for Cost of Living Catherine Cusack officially opened the new Centre, saying it would make like easier for customers, by providing a one-stop shop for hundreds of government transactions.

Mr Farraway said the addition of the Forbes Service Centre was another example of how the NSW Nationals in Government put regional customers first.

“Gone are the bad old days of having to wait in long queues to be served. This new Centre will make life easier for people by saving them time and money,” Mr Farraway said.

“Members of the community are encouraged to come for a visit, meet the Service NSW team, and learn about what this new Centre has to offer.”

Ms Cusack said Service NSW had transformed how the customer interacted with Government, by creating a one-stop shop for registrations, licences and cost of living savings.

“The new Centre provides access to vital services such as getting a birth certificate, Seniors Card, driver licence and renewing vehicle registration,” Ms Cusack said.

“It is also a gateway to household savings and can help people access more than 70 cost of living programs, such as Energy Switch and Active Kids and Creative Kids vouchers.

“I would like to encourage everyone to come in and check their entitlements. There is a good chance that the expert staff here can help save you money with the average saving per Cost of Living appointment over $550.”

The new Service NSW Centre is located at 139 Rankin Street in Forbes and is open between 9am and 4pm on weekdays.
