An elected Liberal Nationals Government will provide a $100,000 grant to help support the work of Mums Supporting Families in Need in the community.
Mums Supporting Families in Need is a volunteer run organisation, providing quality material aid to struggling Victorian families in partnership with community support and welfare organisations.
Under Daniel Andrews and Labor, families are struggling with the cost of living more than ever before.
Recent reports by the Essential Services Commission shows that some Victorians may be paying as much as $1,000 more this year for their electricity or gas.
Separately, St Vincent de Paul’s released a report saying that average annual household electricity costs are around $2,300 a year, an increase of approximately $300 from the previous year with major retailers.
After a personal encounter with a mother in crisis, Mums Supporting Families in Need began over 5 years ago.
Initially sorting from volunteers’ lounge rooms and working with a select group of local support services, Mums Supporting Families in Need now services over 70 agencies from their Seaford warehouse.
The Liberal Nationals understand what a vital service Mums Supporting Families in Need provides at a time when families’ budgets are stretched thin.
A Liberal Nationals Government will ease the cost of living squeeze through better economic management and a series of programs to put more money in the pockets of Victorians.
We have already announced free school books for all secondary students at public schools that will save families around $2,800 a student throughout secondary school.
We have also announced that Victorian households will save up to $100 a year on their water bills through better management of the water corporations.
And P- Platers will receive discounted rego in their first year of having a license.
Comments attributable to Leader of the Liberal Party, Matthew Guy:
“Mums Supporting Families in Need is a vital community service who provides much needed support for families in crisis.
Daniel Andrews and Labor have lost control of cost of living, a Liberal Nationals Government will help Victorians get back in control of their household budgets.
The Liberal Nationals will support families at a time when they need it the most.”
Comments attributable to Liberal Candidate for Carrum, Donna Bauer:
“The staff and volunteers are doing ground breaking work not only in Seaford but around Victoria, assisting families with the essential equipment needed for a happy home environment.
All families deserve to have their basic daily needs met and if elected as Member for Carrum, I will keep working hard and keep delivering for my local community.”
