To the Honourable Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled in Parliament:

The petition of residents of the state of New South Wales draws to the attention of the House the necessity of having a GIA Worker at CCAS, Eastwood for the following reasons:

   Non-English Speaking Background (NESB) migrants residing in Epping, Eastwood, Ryde and surrounding areas require the services of a GIA Worker to assist with settlement needs.

   The NESB population of Epping, Eastwood, Ryde and surrounding areas is rapidly increasing.

   There are no ethno-specific associations, no migrant workers, or migrant resource centre in the Epping, Eastwood, Ryde and surrounding areas to meet the settlement needs of local NESB migrants.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that your Honourable House continue to fund the Grant-In- Aid program at Christian Community Aid Service Inc. at Eastwood and will pray for this outcome.

And your petitions, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
