Georges River Life Care

Mr MARK COURE (Oatley)

—Speaker, I rise to recognise Georges River Life Care, a wonderful local organisation who continue to offer valuable support to members of the community. As a charitable organisation, Georges River Life Care specialises in providing family violence support, emergency relief to those who need it and programs for vulnerable children, families and adults with disabilities. They have supported thousands of individuals since beginning their operation in Peakhurst in 2007. We know that there has been an increase in individuals seeking family and domestic violence support, however the team continues to go above and beyond for their clients. Local charitable organisations are truly one of the cornerstones of the Georges River area. There are so many people out there doing it tough and without organisations like Georges River Life Care, many individuals would not receive the support that they need. I would like to thank Chairman Andrew Scipione AO, CEO and Operations Manager Karen Power and the rest of the executive team and staff for their efforts over the years. I look forward to working alongside Georges River Life Care into the future and continuing to support their wonderful efforts.
