Blacktown Workers Club supports ClubGRANTS community consultation

WORKERS Lifestyle Group, which operates the Workers Blacktown and Workers Sports clubs, has welcomed the NSW Government’s decision to hold a community consultation as part of its review of the ClubGRANTS scheme.
Liquor and Gaming NSW has issued a discussion paper and asked for public feedback on ClubGRANTS to assist the government review of the scheme, which supports vital local services and projects.
“We welcome the opportunity for stakeholders to have a say in the future of ClubGRANTS,” said Workers Lifestyle Group Chief Executive Officer Morgan Stewart.
“We will be making a submission that strongly advocates for retaining and improving the local community-based ClubGRANTS system.”
Morgan said Workers Blacktown and Workers Sports are major supporters of Blacktown community activities, through both ClubGRANTS and WLG’s own direct funding programs.
“We welcome Gaming and Racing Minister David Harris’ statement that registered clubs through ClubGRANTS help to provide vital local services, projects and infrastructure.
“But any program that hasn’t been reviewed for 10 years can be improved, so that more funding is available to community groups.”
In the year to August 31 2023, Workers Blacktown and Workers Sports contributed $962,748 through ClubGRANTS ($755,704 as cash grants and $207,044 as services and facilities) to 62 community, charity and sporting groups.
Workers Lifestyle Group has committed $500,000 over five years to both the Western Sydney Changing Diabetes program and to combating domestic and family violence.
