Midlas are reviewing their Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP). We would like your feedback
The State Government announced on Friday, 5th June 2015 that they will no longer fund financial counselling services in the metropolitan area. As a result Midlas will no longer be able to assist clients with applications for Hardship Utility Grants (HUGS) from the 1st July 2015. We will continue to provide financial counselling services including budgeting and advocacy with limited Federal Government funding.
