New facility in Cherrybrook for people with a disability
26 August 2011
NSW Minister for Disability Services, Andrew Constance, today joined Castle Hill MP Dominic Perrottet in opening a new $4.1 million facility at Cherrybrook designed to provide Post School Options, Community Participation, Targeted Support and Active Ageing Programs for people with a disability.
“The NSW Government provides almost $11 million in recurrent funding to Inala to help the organisation deliver its vital services including supported accommodation, day programs and employment services for adults,” Mr Constance said.
“The NSW Government is committed to supporting organisations like Inala and the valuable services they deliver in local communities.”
“For almost 40 years, the Dulkara Day Centre was housed in a fibro cottage with a number of outbuildings at the organisation’s Franklin Road site,” Mr Perrottet said.
“It has been a long held dream for the organisation to have a purpose-built facility, and thanks largely to community donations, that dream has become a reality.”
