Not sure where to start when applying for Centrelink? We can assist you with general Centrelink information and exploring your eligibility for Centrelink payments. If you have found it hard communicating with Centrelink, submitting your application or even understanding their website, we can help.

If you have received a debt recovery notice from Centrelink or a debt collection service, we are here to assist you and walk you through the process- free of charge! The SHOC team has also put together a list of other services who can also help you through this complex and stressful process.


Financial First Aid

Are you having difficulties with you finances? SHOC can provide you with the opportunity to talk to someone about your financial situation, discuss any immediate concerns and work towards practical ways of getting you back on top of your money.
