Funds for security upgrades
MOUNT Druitt faith communities will benefit as the NSW Government delivers on its promise to help ensure places of worship across the state are safer and more secure through the Safe Places for Faith Communities Program.
The following organisations have received funding as part of the first round of the program:
The Western Sydney Turkish Islamic Cultural Centre received $193,678.00 in funding for a Security Upgrade
The Anglican Parish of Rooty Hill received $49,984.00 for a Security Infrastructure Upgrade for Multicultural Bible Mini.
The program is an election commitment and is part of a wider $15M pledge over four years. It was developed in consultation with faith and religious groups and experts across the state, as well as Multicultural NSW’s Community Resilience and Response Plan (COMPLAN) Committee.
The program takes a resilience-based approach to safety and security by supporting prevention, preparedness, response and recovery measures at places where faith communities gather.
Edmond Atalla MP, Member for Mount Druitt said: "The people who live here in Mount Druitt have shown their commitment to their faiths and we’re proud to be committing to their safety too.”
“I welcome this investment which will have lasting impacts for generations and I’m proud to play my
part in bringing about positive outcomes for the many faith and religious communities in Mount Druitt.”
