A re-elected NSW Liberal Government will guarantee a new Children and Youth Centre in Riverstone, in Sydney’s Northwest.
The $2 million commitment will bring new facilities at the Life Anglican Church building in Quakers Hill, adding a youth centre that includes a kitchen, updated toilets, a covered walkway to link classrooms as well as an enclosed verandah with a covered car porch.
Minister for Families and Communities, and Minister for Disability Services Natasha Maclaren-Jones said only the Perrottet Liberal Team can be relied on to deliver much needed services to this growing part of Sydney.
“I am delighted to partner with the Life Anglican Church to help deliver what will be a terrific asset for this community,” Mrs Maclaren-Jones said.
“We know it’s been a tough few years for young people and it is projects like this that will create opportunities to keep them and their families connected with the community.
“The Perrottet Liberal Team is committed to ensuring young people get the best start in life and updating, expanding and modernising existing facilities will benefit people living in Riverstone, Quakers Hill, Schofields and The Ponds.”
Liberals Candidate for Riverstone Mohit Kumar said the investment in the area will also ensure the space will be welcoming for anyone and everyone.
“The Life Anglican Church has been a pillar in the local community for 100 years. This funding will help ensure their vital work can continue,” Mr Kumar said.
“I look forward to seeing the wonderful facilities such as an outdoor learning centre for children, a grassed area for play, educational programs, ESL classes, community food collection, cultural activities and a commercial kitchen for food preparation for community events,” Mr Kumar said.
