An elected Liberal Nationals Government will provide a $130,000 grant towards the replacement of buses at the Hampton Park Community House.
The Hampton Park Community House is in desperate need to replace the two 12 seater buses that it has in its current stock.
The buses currently transport children from the five primary schools in the area, to and from the Community House to attend the Out of School Care Program.
The Community House also utilises the buses to hire out externally in order to raise revenue for operating expenses of the facility, and also provide an affordable service to the local community for bus hire.
“Hampton Park Community House is a vital support service that prides themselves on engaging and empowering the local community by providing social support and educational opportunities,” shadow minister for families and children Georgie Crozier said.
“Susan Serey has worked tirelessly with community leaders to deliver this funding for Hampton Park and if elected as MP, she will keep working hard and keep delivering.”
Liberal Candidate for Narre Warren South Susan Serey said this investment into Hampton Park Community House will allow the important organisation to continue their dedicated work in helping the local community in a friendly and welcoming environment.
“I’m working hard with Matthew Guy and his team on important issues such as this because our community deserves a local Member of Parliament that’s fighting hard for them,” she said.
Hampton Park Community House manager Tania Sacco said, “These new buses will provide an amazing resource to support the Community House.
“It also will extend beyond, to our school support services, community groups including the elderly and CALD, and supporting families with issues such as domestic violence and mental health.
“This investment into our grass roots community needs is appreciated beyond words.”
