In May, when the government announced with less than 24 hours notice that they planned to close the Abbotsford Centrelink, our community urgently mobilised together and forced the Minister to delay for three months. 

Now, we need to come together once to ensure that the government delivers a permanent Centrelink service for our community. 

By joining us in writing to the Minister for Government Services, Stuart Robert, you can help us send a powerful message that our community wants and needs a Centrelink service. 

Our movement is powerful when we take action together.

Will you write to the Minister today and ask him to ensure a permanent physical Centrelink for our community?
