Federal Member for Calare, Andrew Gee has announced the Wellington Information and Neighbourhood Services Inc. (WINS) were successful under Round Three of the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Programme.
“I’m delighted to announce that the Wellington Information and Neighbourhood Services Inc. have been awarded a $5,000 grant under Round Three of the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Programme,” Mr Gee said.
“The funding will go towards upgrading the outdoor space at WINS providing a covered area and disabled access to the building.
“WINS have a growing range of services catering to the multi-cultural and generational needs of the community, including social, youth and referral services.
“This new space will enable WINS to provide a comfortable and safe environment outside, freeing up room indoors. It will also present more opportunities to host a variety of community groups and events outside and under cover.”
The Federal Government committed $22.5 million to Round Three of the Stronger Communities Programme in the 2017 Budget.
