Quotes attributable to Member for Summer Hill, Jo Haylen MP:

“Thank you to each of the residents who participated in my community survey and had their say about the wonderful work these groups do in our community.

“As always, it was an extremely difficult decision and I am so proud of those groups who were successful this time around. Each of these projects will make a real difference in the community.

“I am prouder still of all the volunteers and organisations that work to help the most vulnerable across the inner west each and every day. Our community thrives because of the work that you do.”
