(Community Recognition Statement, 17 November 2020, Legislative Assembly, NSW Parliament)
On behalf of the Sydney electorate, I congratulate the successful organisations receiving Community Building Partnership grants this year. These small capital grants help local efforts to support the community and include everyone in their activities. This year, grants go to: food relief outreach van for The Wayside Chapel Potts Point; supporting the Edward Eager Lodge homelessness accommodation redevelopment in Darlinghurst; bathroom and kitchen upgrades at William Booth alcohol/drug service in Surry Hills; roof, guttering and drainage repairs for the Woolloomooloo PCYC; disability access lift at The Great Synagogue; painting inside The Station's CBD homelessness service; softfall grass at KU childcare Maybanke Pyrmont; playground refurbishment KU childcare Phillip Park in the city; defibrillator for the Maccabi Hakoah Football Club Paddington; and hydraulic nappy change table for KU childcare Lance Millers Point. While these grants are relatively small, they can make a big difference to local services and activities, and I welcome the funds for the Sydney community.
