Fourteen worthy service organisations in my electorate shared $150,000 worth of federal funding grants under the latest round of the Stronger Communities Program to assist in their development. A consultative committee comprised of local community leaders met to assess the applications received. Mullaloo Surf Life Saving Club was allocated $20,000 to equip its first aid room to treat injuries sustained by beachgoers. Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club received $14,000 for the purchase of an all-terrain vehicle and radio communications equipment to patrol our beaches. The Joondalup Men's Shed was allocated $18,000 for the purchase of a 12-seater minibus to transport participants to and from the workshop. Cycling Without Age received $7,500 for the purchase of a new trishaw to take elderly and disabled residents on coastal rides and The Spiers Centre received $12,000 for the purchase of equipment to be used in providing relief services to local families.

I look forward to continuing my efforts to secure additional funding for these local community groups.
