Community projects receive funding boost in Swansea


Manno Men’s Shed Incorporated is one of the big Swansea winners from the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnerships Program.

The Mannering Park organisation secured $74,460, in the latest round of funding, to extend its premises to provide a safe passive work area for its members.

Another 10 projects in the electorate were also beneficiaries of the $300,000 windfall.

“The state government funds will deliver much-needed improvements to facilities including upgrades to local Rural Fire Brigade facilities and surf clubs,” Swansea MP Yasmin Catley said.

“This grassroots funding will help create a more vibrant and inclusive community with positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes.

“I congratulate all the groups that were successful in their application.

“And, I look forward to seeing how their projects make a difference in their respective communities.”
