How can we help?
Many residents are unaware of the services available to them through their local member of Parliament. My office offers a range of services to the community. My electorate staff are only too pleased to assist you with any enquiries or concerns you may have.
Letters of Support
We are happy to provide letters of support to not-for-profit organisations who are applying for government funding. Information we require include the purpose of the grant, organisational particulars and benefits which the organisation and the wider community will gain from the funding.

The Companion Card was developed to remove the financial barrier for people with disability who require lifelong attendant care support to participate at events, activities and venues. The National Companion Card brings together state and territory programs that enable eligible people with disability who require attendant care support to participate at venues and activities without incurring the cost of a second ticket for their companion.

Stronger Communities Programme – Round 7
The Morrison Joyce Government is working to keep our economy strong, and to strengthen local communities.
Groups such as yours contribute so much to our local community, and make our community such a great place to live, work and raise a family.
Our Government is working to strengthen communities and I have secured $150,000 in Round 7 of this Programme to support 20 community projects that
• bring our communities together;
• strengthen social connections;
• build community participation; and
• create vibrant and viable communities into the future.
I’d like to invite your organisation to apply for funding through the Stronger Communities Programme. Grants can range from $2,500 to $20,000. SCP EOI Form Round 7
