The Cowra Information and Neighbourhood Centre will receive a $20,000 funding
boost to help them modernise their operations and improve the services they deliver.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the NSW Government’s Social Sector
Transformation Fund was supporting small to medium sized organisations with grants.
“Social services organisations such as the Cowra Information and Neighbourhood
Centre play a pivotal role delivering support to some of the most vulnerable people in
our community,” Ms Cooke said.
“They’ve had to adapt how they deliver services during the pandemic and this $20,000 in funding will help them invest in improved business processes, technology upgrades and new ways of reaching out to the community.”
The Social Sector Transformation Fund supports organisations working in the social
and health services sector, including homelessness, housing, disability, youth, health
and child and family services.
Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services Alister Henskens said the
fund would create a stronger social services sector.
“Our community services organisations are the backbone of our nation and when they are strong, we are all strong,” Mr Henskens said.
“This funding will enable grassroots community organisations to invest in practical
changes that will help them remain viable long into the future.”
