Advocacy and Advisory -

We seek to cooperate and work with grassroots organisations to better help those disadvantaged and marginalised within their communities in Australia by offering advisory and advocacy services. Families and Individuals are in more distress, and more in need of help today than ever before! With the complexity of requirements by State and Federal Government bodies and agencies, banks and Workcover providers, it is becoming harder for the average person to make their way through the maze to achieve a successful outcome for themselves. Oz Assist will help them obtain, where possible, the outcomes they desire by helping them work through the various processes and procedures required. Oz Assist is increasing its advisory and advocacy services for those who are disadvantaged, marginalised, disabled or who are suffering from illness. There is a widening need for these individuals and families to be helped as they often “fall through the cracks”.

Project Summary:

With the complexity of requirements by State and Federal Government bodies and agencies, banks and Workcover providers, it is becoming harder for the average person to make their way through the maze to achieve a successful outcome for themselves.

We take and assist clientele to their appropriate appointments, being Medical Emergencies, Hospitals, Specialists Surgeons, Doctors, Dentists and other medical appointments (ie. Psychologist, Sleep Disorders), Government Departments (ie. Centrelink), Local Government, Workcover Agencies, Banks, Solicitors, Landlord queries and Shopping.
Oz Assist will help them obtain, where possible, the outcomes they desire by helping them work through the various processes and procedures required. Oz Assist helps charities to set themselves up so they are compliant with the requirements of various State and Federal Government organisations, as well as banking and accounting practices.

Oz Assist also helps grassroots non-profit organisations (charities) who don’t have the expertise to make sure they are compliant with:
(a) Local State requirements (Incorporations)
(b) Australian Charities and Non-Profits Commission (ACNC)
(c) Australian Taxation Office (ATO)

Project Outcomes:

The project aims to help to get the desired outcomes that the Individuals , Families and Non-Profits require for them to achieve their goals. This means less stress on them and therefore they become better community citizens.
In helping Non-Profits , we are unique as another Non-Profit organisation , who understands their need and requirements for compliance.
