A helping hand for injured workers

The NSW Injured Workers Support Network extends a helping hand to the people most affected by the state government’s savage cuts to workers compensation.

The network is sponsored by Unions NSW and the Workers’ Health Centre.

The network has set up a dedicated phone line — (02) 9749 7566 — for anyone with questions or concerns about workers compensation.

If you can’t get through on that number send an email with your name and contact details to help@injuredworkerssupport.org.au

The network is working closely with unions to reverse the compo cuts. Regional support groups meet monthly and all are welcome to attend.

Four regional groups have been set up in Bathurst, Gosford, Parramatta and Newcastle, with more planned.
