Yerin Eleanor Duncan Aboriginal Health Services, will receive $200,000 through the NSW Governments Social Sector Support Fund, to assist with the delivery of critical social service support to vulnerable people across the Central Coast.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said this program would assist Yerin Eleanor Duncan to retain jobs, meet emergency needs and secure business continuity.


“This funding will aim to support the frontline service delivery for the most vulnerable people in our community,” Mr Crouch said.


“As we continue to ease restrictions, this additional boost will help organisations like Yerin Eleanor Duncan adapt and ensure the continuity of the important support they provide.”


Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services Alister Henskens said the funding boost is part of the NSW Government’s $50 million Social Sector Support Fund, which is delivering a range of targeted financial assistance to organisations working across the social services and animal welfare sectors.


“The social services sector in NSW is incredibly diverse and includes organisations working across child and family services, domestic violence, homelessness, housing, and disability support,” Mr Henskens said.


Chief Executive Officer of Yerin Eleanor Duncan Aboriginal Services Belinda Field said the amount supplied under the NSW Governments Social Sector Support Fund will enable Yerin Eleanor Duncan to continue with the important work they have been doing.


“This funding will enable us to continue servicing the community without the additional stress and burden of needing to seek additional funds to cover costs.”
