Responded By: Hon Di Farmer MP on 14/06/2018

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the urgent need for additional support under the Local Area Priority Projects (LEAPP) initiative for the Family Support Program at the Maroochy Neighbourhood Centre (MNC) to continue beyond June 2018.

This program provides valuable support for the most vulnerable families in our community and without additional support MNC may lose some of their vital Family Support Services (e.g additional individual family support workers hours to support the families who attend homework, afterschool clubs and parenting programs outside the "club" hours).

Your petitioners therefore request the House to ask the Minister for Child Safety, Youth & Women and Minister for the Prevention of Domestic & Family Violence to provide additional support under the Local Area Priority Projects (LEAPP) initiative to enable the Family Support Program at the Maroochy Neighbourhood Centre to continue beyond June 2018.
