Fifteen organisations on the Central Coast are to share a $540,000 funding boost from the NSW Government’s Social Sector Transformation Fund.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said the funds are targeted at small to medium-sized organisations which require extra support to modernise their operations and improve their service delivery.
“There are many social services like youth organisations, legal support and health care providers that partner with all levels of government in caring for the most vulnerable people in our Central Coast community,” Crouch said.
“Everyone has had to adapt and change during the COVID-19 pandemic and social sector organisations are no different.
“This funding will help them to improve business processes, upgrade technology and investigate new ways to reach their target communities.”
Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services, Alister Henskens, said the funding would enable grassroots community organisations to invest in practical changes that will help them remain viable long into the future.
