CLE_Super_NPA_TI_Jan2020Last week ATSILS were invited to take part in a community event held by QSuper Fund and the Indigenous Consumer Assistance Network Ltd (ICAN) in the Northern Peninsula Area (NPA) of Cape York.

Five communities (Seisia, New Mapoon, Bamaga, Umagico and Injinoo) all received a full day visit from a range of service providers that included QSuper, ICAN, the Office of Fair Trading, Good Shepherd Microfinance, NPA Community Justice Group and of course ATSILS.

Helpful information and resources were provided to community members on a range of topics including, superannuation, No Interest Loan Schemes, and StepUp personal loans, bills, budgeting, saving and banking, consumer rights and responsibilities and civil law advice.

The NPA is one of the most remote regions of Queensland and access to help and information on these topics greatly needed. A big thank you to QSuper and ICAN for planning such a successful event designed to respond to the local needs of these communities and we look forward to collaborating again in the future.
