Liberal Nationals pledge $50,000 grant for Community Support Frankston
To celebrate Community Support Frankston’s 50th year, an elected Liberal Nationals Government will provide a $50,000 grant to Community Support Frankston.
Community Support Frankston is a not for profit community support agency which provides emergency relief, crisis intervention and local information for the suddenly homeless and people in crisis.
CSF is one of the busiest agencies of its type in Victoria – with nearly 13,000 people contacting the organisation for assistance last year and currently has 114 active volunteers.
This funding will enable this important local organisation to continue its important work.
Comments attributable to Shadow Minster for Families and Children, Georgie Crozier:
“Community Support Frankston is a vital support service that prides themselves on engaging and empowering the local community by providing emergency relief.
The Liberal Nationals appreciate the valuable contributions of organisations like Community Support Frankston who contribute to the important work of strengthening the community in tough times when they need it the most.”
Comments attributable to Liberal Candidate for Frankston, Michael Lamb:
“Community Support Frankston has asked for support from government for the remarkable work they do, and we’ve listened.
Community Support Frankston performs an integral role in our community, with many vulnerable and disadvantaged people relying on their services for a meal or even just a bit of companionship.
This commitment by the Liberal Nationals reinforces our goal to support struggling families and individuals through funding valuable local organisations such as Community Support Frankston.”
