Centrelink Agency Re-Opens

Posted in Latest News

The Centrelink Agency at Castlemaine Community House will resume limited services as of Monday 1st June. You must have an appointment to see the Agent. No walk-ins available. Call CCH on 5472 4842 to book.

With reduced COVID-19 restrictions effective Monday 1 June 2020, Castlemaine Community House is pleased to advise that the Centrelink Agency operations at 30 Templeton St Castlemaine will be re-instated that day.

This will be a reduced service by “appointment only” that meets the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) social distancing and sanitising requirements.

“We know this has been a challenging time for many in the community” says Martyn Shaddick, Manager of Castlemaine Community House.   “The need for us to close our doors to the public removed a number of vital services in the shire, with the Centrelink Agency being near the top of the list for many people”.

“We are so pleased to be able to offer one on one Centrelink services again.  While there will be some limitations to services to maintain community safety, it is a first step in returning to the Centrelink service we have provided for many years now” Martyn says.

There will be safety procedures in place, as well as the need to record customer details for COVID-19 tracing requirements.
