Beachgoers will have a safer Summer this year thanks to a $200,000 NSW Government grant to replace oxygen resuscitation kits in every Surf Life Saving club.
Member for Manly James Griffin was with the Minister for Health and Medical Research Brad Hazzard at Manly SLSC today to present the kits to the 21 surf clubs on the Northern Beaches, after Mr Hazzard announced funding in February for 129 new OTK oxygen resuscitation kits.
Adults with disability and older people on the Northern Beaches now have a powerful advocate in their corner with the appointment of Robert Fitzgerald AM as NSW’s first Ageing and Disability Commissioner.
The Commissioner began work this week tasked with protecting adults with disability and older people from abuse, neglect and exploitation.
To celebrate Mental Health Month in October, Member for Manly James Griffin is calling for grant applications for Northern Beaches projects and events that promote social connectedness and encourage openness towards mental health in the community.
