Member for Kiama Gareth Ward MP said that a new cost of living campaign offering a boost to every household and business budget is designed to raise awareness of the more than 70 ways to save across the NSW Government’s Savings Finder program.

Mr Ward said that since launching in 2017, the program had saved families around $5.8 billion, with Australian-first vouchers, rebates and initiatives designed to find savings in every aspect of daily life.

“We know how hard it is for so many families in our community, which is why we are committed to easing the cost of living for all households,” he said.

“Whether you are a family, a retired couple, a young professional or a small business owner, we want to deliver you hip pocket savings.

“Many local families and businesses across the Kiama electorate are still unware of the various savings available, ranging from family activities to holiday vouchers.

“Our cost of living program is designed to help with everyday expenses including household energy and utilities, transport, raising children, dining, experiences and accommodation,” Mr Ward said.

“More than three million people have accessed the free Savings Finder tool, which has something for everyone. It can be easily found on either the Service NSW App, or the MyService NSW Account on the Service NSW website.

“Savings specialists are available in-person at Service NSW centres or via phone on 13 77 88, providing personalised assistance to find which initiatives are best suited to a family’s individual needs.

“To date, there have been more than 97,000 appointments made with Savings Specialists, saving households an average of around $770.

“My message to local residents is simple – please do yourself a favour and give the Savings Finder program a go or book an appointment with a Savings Specialist. You could walk away with extra money in your pocket,” Mr Ward said.
