Falinski Steps up to Support Northern Beaches Veterans

The COVID-19 Pandemic has hit veterans and their families hard and the Liberal Government is supporting veterans advocacy services during this difficult time.

On behalf of the Federal Government, Northern Beaches MP Jason Falinski has provided a grant to the Northern Beaches Veterans Centre which will help to fund their essential support measurers.

“Like all Australians, veterans and their families have been hard hit by the Pandemic.” Mr Falinski said.

“This grant will help support The Veterans Centre as they continue to provide advice and assistance to the veteran and defence community across the Northern Beaches.”

Mr Falinski visited the Veterans Centre in Dee Why on the 22nd of July to speak with the new General Manager, Nicole Noakes about the work they are doing.

The grant was provided under the Australian Government’s Building Excellence in Support and Training (BEST) grants program. More than 160 ex-service organisations (ESOs) across Australia received a share of $4.2 million of funding.

For more information on BEST grants visit the grants page on the DVA website www.dva.gov.au/grants.
