Funding for special needs chairs – Gunnedah RSL sub-branch

Monday, 8 October 2018

With today marking 100 years of the Gunnedah RSL sub-branch, Member for Parkes Mark Coulton has announced $1660 for the sub-branch to obtain six special needs chairs.

The funding comes under the Federal Government’s Veteran and Community Grants program to support veterans and their families in the Gunnedah area.

“I congratulate the Gunnedah RSL sub-branch on successfully receiving this grant, which will greatly assist members that are not able to stand for certain periods of time,” Mr Coulton said.

“The Gunnedah RSL sub-branch has a well-deserved reputation for its commitment to improving the lives of those who have served and sacrificed for our nation, and 100 years is a remarkable milestone.

“The improvement of these facilities will provide great benefits to the local community.”

Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Darren Chester has also congratulated recipients of the grants.

“This Government is committed to putting veterans and their families first and investing in these types of projects does just that,” Mr Chester said.

Ex-service and community organisations, veteran groups and private organisations that contribute to the health and welfare of the veteran community are encouraged to apply for funding through the Veteran and Community Grants program.

Veteran and Community Grants are now available through the Australian Government’s Community Grants Hub - www.communitygrants.gov.au
