"I feel privleged to have the opporuntity to train as a voluntary advoacte and learn ways of helpng people in the comunity negotiate the often tricky pathways of government services through research and planning. I think PAS is an organisation with highly commendable values. It is a genuine, actively-listening voice for the dis-empowered"

"I received the very best service and result in dealing with a problem with Work & Income. Pene gave me all the support, information and advised Work and Income of her involvement in my case.


It was only after a few days and the whole matter was sorted out and I faced none of the outcomes I had been threatened.


I can thoroughly recommend your Society and Pene"
