Talk to us
You are reminded that all forms of social media (YouTube, Twitter, blogs and Flickr) are public spaces on the internet and most interactions are publicly viewable and searchable over time.
Will you respond to my comments and questions?
Unfortunately the department is not always able to respond to individual comments or questions. If a question, theme or topic is raised frequently the department will aim to provide a response.
As social media is considered a less formal communication all interaction within these channels should be considered as informal.
How do I contact the department to make a formal or written enquiry?
If you have an enquiry or want to raise an issue or concern with the department please contact the Community Information Unit (CIU) 1800 803 772 or email email@example.com. The CIU will work with the relevant officers in the department to respond to your query. At times they may also put you in direct contact with staff within the department to handle your enquiry or concern directly.
