Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced almost $400,000 in funding to provide additional youth support services in Grafton and South Grafton.
“This funding will provide additional support for Indigenous youth at risk of suicide and self-harm” Kevin Hogan said.
“Gurehlgam Corporation will receive funding to provide youth case management services through until 30 June 2019 to vulnerable Indigenous people in Grafton and South Grafton.”
“It is important that these types of services are provided for all of our community, particularly the most disadvantaged. There are far too many examples where people have not had access to these services across the Clarence.” he said.
The Gurehlgam Corporation project is one of 43 recently funded under the IAS. Services have been funded to provide intensive support to Indigenous people most affected in the following areas: alcohol and drugs, domestic violence, mental health and wellbeing, and youth offending.
