49,300 HACC FUNDING FOR GILMORE

31/5/06

Some of Gilmore's unsung heroes are among the big winners in the latest round of Home and Community Care funding announced by Member for Gilmore, Joanna Gash, today.

$49,300 will flow to four organisations and five projects within the region.

Interchange Shoalhaven will receive $30,000 for its Shoalhaven Flexible Respite Care Service, Wingecarribee Food Services Co-operative has secured $4,300 to assist administration and training, Life Without barriers has been granted $10,000 for its day activities initiative and Shoalhaven Community Transport will receive $5000 to further its volunteering training regime.

"This is about supporting those organisations and community groups that support us," Mrs Gash said.

"There are many members of our community who rely on the services offered by the likes of Interchange Shoalhaven and Wingecarribee Food Services and it is great to see continued recognition of their often understated role.

"I congratulate each group on securing the funds and know the money will be directed to where it is needed most.

"This funding demonstrates the Australian Government's continued commitment to assisting frail aged people and people with disabilities to remain in their homes with their family by providing basic maintenance and support services in the home."
