I am very pleased to announce Plumtree Children’s Service in Marrickville will receive funding of $20,000 for a renovation of their bathroom as part of the Stronger Communities Program.
The Stronger Communities Program, administered through my office, will see a number of organisations across the electorate receive funding to support their activities.
Plumtree is well-known across the inner west for the work it does in supporting young children with a developmental delay or disability.
The additional funding will be transformative for Plumtree.
It will allow them to provide a more accessible environment that caters for every child, regardless of age or ability, who uses their bathroom.
The funding will go toward a new nappy change area, extra toilet and storage.
Sylvana Mahmic, CEO of Plumtree, said the funding was very welcome and would go a long way towards ensuring an inclusive space.
“There is so much more we can do as a community to ensure we include children with a disability,” Ms Mahmic said.
“We’re very pleased to receive this funding, which is a great example of how simple changes can make a very big difference in people’s lives,” Ms Mahmic said.
I want to congratulate Plumtree on their successful application and thank them on behalf of the community for their dedication to supporting children and families across the inner west.
