Two social sector organisations in Parkes have received a funding boost to help them modernise operations and improve the services they deliver.
Neighbourhood Central received $50,000 and Parkes Forbes Community Housing received $20,000 from the NSW Government’s Social Sector Transformation Fund. The Yoorana Gunya Family Healing Centre Aboriginal Corporation in Forbes also received $20,000.
“Social services organisations play a pivotal role delivering support to some of the most vulnerable people in our community,” said NSW Upper House MP Sam Farraway.
“They’ve had to adapt how they deliver services during the pandemic and this funding will help them invest in improved business processes, technology upgrades and new ways of reaching out to their communities.”
“This funding will enable grassroots community organisations to invest in practical changes that will help them remain viable long into the future.”
