The Morrison Government today announced over $1.3 million in funding for Playgroup Australia to continue delivering its PlayConnect Playgroups and Better Start Community Events programs.
Access to best-practice early childhood programs, such as PlayConnect Playgroups, is vital for children with developmental delay or disability. PlayConnect Playgroups provide play experiences that are responsive to the needs of children aged 0-6 with autism or autism-like symptoms and provide an environment of peer-support for families
By investing in children before they reach school age, we are helping to maximise their opportunities in education, the community and in work, later in life.

A great initiative and congratulations to all involved.

I had the privilege to attend and address the Chinese New Year Festival in Chatswood. This event celebrated the arrival of the Year of the Pig, and was a wonderful example of the vibrant Chinese culture we have here in Bradfield. To those celebrating Chinese New Year, I wish you good health and prosperity over the coming year.

I hosted a Community Meeting at Waitara Magpies, attended by around eighty Bradfield constituents. I began with a report to the meeting on the priorities we are pursuing in Canberra, including employment (with 1.2 million jobs created since we came to government) and keeping the budget strong so we can fund the services Australians rely on such as Medicare and social security. During a lively Q&A session, quite a number of topics came up including the high price of energy and concerns about the reliability of the energy network; the need for more investment in rail (I mentioned our $9.4 billion commitment to Inland Rail and our $20 million program to fund business cases under the Faster Rail program); the need for more bike paths; as well as some local development issues.
These meetings are very helpful to me in understanding the priorities and concerns of my constituents – and I really appreciate the effort made by so many to come along and participate.
I hold these meetings regularly so look out for notifications on social media and my website if you are interested in coming along.
