On Wednesday, October 26 , in recognition of Anti-Poverty Week, the Energy and Water Ombudsman NSW is hosting a Re-charge & Energise Forum for Community Workers from the Northern Rivers regions. Attending will be representatives from NSW state agencies, Ombudsman offices ie; AFCA, NSW Ombudsman and EWON, NSW Fair Trading and Energy providers. All these organisations will be on hand to meet with the Community Workers with the aim of sharing information about all of the support services offered.
The Energy and Water Ombudsman NSW (EWON) works closely with community workers across NSW, and we know this year has been particularly challenging for everyone working in the Northern Rivers region.
We’d like to offer you a day to recharge yourselves and your energy and water knowledge.
As your clients try to rebuild after the floods, and energy prices rise, our free, day-long forum will explain how EWON and other organisations can help consumers experiencing vulnerability.
We’re keen to hear about the energy and water issues your clients are currently dealing with and we’ll provide you with the latest information about how Ombudsman schemes, energy regulators and consumer networks are supporting customers.
The speaker line-up will include representatives from the Australian Financial Complaints Authority, the NSW Ombudsman and the Australian Energy Regulator.
Keep an eye on your inbox for a more detailed invitation including the full list of speakers.

EWON will also hold a Community Assistance Day at the Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre on Thursday, 27 October from 10am-3pm.
A range of community and government services will be on hand to assist residents with energy and water bills, finances, insurance, legal issues and fines.
