The Federal Government is working with state and territory authorities in response to the bushfire crisis and a key part of this is linking people in with the services they need.
Services Australia has mobilised and rapidly deployed Mobile Service Teams and Mobile Service Centres to get support to bushfire affected communities in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.
Staff from the National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA) are joining the Service Australia teams and centres where there are Indigenous populations that could benefit from additional support.
The NIAA has also provided information for bushfire impacted communities including a range of factsheets that cover the range of Australian Government payments available for individuals and businesses impacted by the fires and how to access them.
