Speech to ASU members, Blaxland - Restoring Respect for the Community Sector

RESTORING RESPECT FOR THE COMMUNITY SECTORSPEECH TO AUSTRALIAN SERVICES UNION MEMBERS, BLAXLAND, TUESDAY, 15 MARCH 2022

'The past three years have placed an extraordinary burden on our community, and you have all stepped up to provide an extraordinary level of support.

From providing shelter and assistance to those who lost their homes in the 2019 bushfires, help to the sick, isolated and vulnerable during the pandemic, and now dealing with the devastation of the floods.

The work that you and your organisations have done has been nothing short of amazing. And it is all the more impressive given that it came after years where the Coalition Government seemingly did everything in its power to destroy capability in the sector.'

With Linda Burney MP, Josh Burns MP and Ged Kearney MP at Vic Pride Centre LGBTIQ+ announcement
2.29pm | March 17, 2022

Linda Burney MP, Josh Burns MP, Ged Kearney MP and I met with LGBTIQ+ organisations at the Victorian Pride Centre. If Labor wins government, an Albanese government will fund 15 workers in LGBTIQ+ community organisations to help people experiencing domestic and family violence. This means 1,200 people who would have been turned away will now get help at one of the most vulnerable times in their life.
