Isis Town and Country - - Life -

ISIS Child Care and Fam­ily Sup­port Hub in Childers will re­ceive an ad­di­tional $19,404 cash injection to en­hance ser­vice de­liv­ery.

Mem­ber for Bur­nett Stephen Ben­nett wel­comed the in­creased fund­ing, which he said was a re­cur­rent pay­ment through the Queens­land Govern­ment.

“The fund­ing pro­vided to Isis Child Care would in­crease from $94,596 to $114,000 as at July 1,” he said.

“Isis Child Care and Fam­ily Sup­port is one of 25 hubs across Queens­land to re­ceive a share of $2.3 mil­lion in fund­ing through the Queens­land Govern­ment to sup­port chil­dren and fam­i­lies through a wide range of early child­hood de­vel­op­ment ac­tiv­i­ties,” he said.

“Th­ese ad­di­tional funds will as­sist the child care and fam­ily sup­port hub to con­tinue the great work they do in sup­port­ing vul­ner­a­ble fam­i­lies in the com­mu­nity.”

Mr Ben­nett con­grat­u­lated staff at the Isis Child Care and Fam­ily Sup­port hub.

“The Isis Child Care and Fam­ily Sup­port hub is multi-func­tional and a highly flex­i­ble re­source, pro­vid­ing ac­tiv­i­ties and ser­vices for fam­i­lies with young chil­dren,” he said.

“Cen­tres such as the Isis Child Care and Fam­ily Sup­port hub play a cru­cial role in com­mu­ni­ties and it’s great to see this lo­cal fa­cil­ity will be able to con­tinue and build on the ser­vices.”
