How I can help

I try to write back to everyone who contacts my office personally and me and my team are always available to help. 

If you need help with anything, please contact my office on (07) 3862 4044 or [email protected].

We can’t always help but we will always point you in the right direction. You can also check out my helpful community contacts directory

Helping you and your family

I know it can sometimes be difficult to navigate regulations, bureaucracy and dealing with government agencies. My office can help Brisbane residents by deciphering jargon in official documents, advocating on your behalf with complex issues, and even solving individual issues directly. 

We can help with:

  • Visa and immigration issues 
  • NDIS plans and claims
  • Centrelink and Medicare issues
  • Public and social housing issues
  • Tenants rights issues
  • Letters of support
  • Freedom of information and right to information claims
  • Making a complaint about a decision made by a public authority

Community organising

One of the best bits of my job is helping people build something powerful together. My office can help you organise in your community with:

  • Printing newsletters, flyers and other materials
  • Borrowing marquees, tables and BBQs
  • Audio visual equipment like loudspeakers, microphones and projectors
  • Use of our meeting rooms
  • Help pitching your stories to local media
  • Promotion of your group or event in our newsletters
  • Donating prizes for your community fundraiser
  • Making grant applications
  • Advice on talking to politicians and how to influence Parliament
  • Community organising, field campaigning and media and communications advice

I also have guidance to help your household plan for an emergency and what you can do when you see hateful material in our community.

How I give back

As well as helping solve problems you might be facing or helping our community organise, I also run programmes out of my office to help our community out.
