The Gunnedah community has received a most welcome boost with the announcement of a $12,560 grant to construct a new kitchen in the Sunnyfield Community Service Hub.
Member for Parkes Mark Coulton has congratulated Sunnyfield on their successful application, which has been funded under Round Four of the Coalition Government’s Stronger Communities Programme (SCP).
“This grant is an excellent investment in an important community asset in Gunnedah,” Mr Coulton said.
“Sunnyfield plays a crucial role in the local area by supporting people with intellectual disability. This project involves replacing the existing kitchen with accessible benches and cupboards, helping to maximise social interaction and skill development.
“This kitchen upgrade will help ensure Sunnyfield continues to be an accessible and welcoming local support service.”
In July last year, the Australian Government announced the launch of Round Four of the SCP. The Government’s funding commitment for Round Four is $22.5 million, with up to $150,000 for each electorate. A maximum of 20 projects will be funded in each electorate, with successful projects receiving a grant between $2,500 and $20,000.

More information about further successful projects in the Parkes electorate will be made available in the near future.
