Consumer Protection WA and Ask Us are proud to support this year’s National NAIDOC Week 2022. NAIDOC Week celebrates and recognises the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This year’s theme ‘Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!’ features artwork created by Ryhia Dank. The theme focuses on supporting and securing institutional, structural, collaborative, and cooperative reforms for the recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ rights. To acknowledge NAIDOC Week 2022, Consumer Protection WA is holding a staff afternoon tea featuring native bush foods.
Consumer Protection WA and Ask Us provides education and assistance to Aboriginal consumers relating to the Australian Consumer Law. This includes information and guidance on consumer rights issues including rental issues, shopping rights, motor vehicles and servicing, tradespersons, charities, scams and product safety. Consumer Protection WA and Ask Us projects are designed to align with the National Indigenous Consumer Strategy (NICS), with research and learnings applied from the 2015 Indigenous Consumers Count report.
The following communication campaigns and publications focus on common issues and targeted scams that affect Aboriginal consumers. Some have been developed for general use and others are specifically designed to help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
