The Infants’ Home at Ashfield to receive $20,000 for upgrade

It was a pleasure to address The Infants’ Home Children’s Carnival on Saturday and announce their successful application for a $20,000 grant through the Stronger Communities Program.

This will go towards the Sydney Child Development Clinic Upgrade project – Sydney’s first integrated and coordinated early intervention clinic in an existing The Infants Home building.

The Sydney Child Development Clinic will focus on providing early intervention health support services to families of children with a disability.

It will form an integral part of The Infants’ Home hub, providing fully integrated community services that focus on best practices for children and families, and also support preventative health initiatives within the community.

The Infants’ Home plays an important role in the inner west community.

Their commitment to providing inclusive spaces for all children makes such a positive difference.

Saturday’s Children’s Carnival is testimony to their dedication to the local community, which hundreds of families attended.

I want to acknowledge the work of CEO of The Infants’ Home, Anita Kumar, as well as her team, and wish them all the best with the upgrade.
