Link-Up (NSW) thanks Federal Member for Chifley Ed Husic for his special visit to our Ropes Crossing office today.
After an Acknowledgement to Country by Uncle Dennis Dunn and Dianne Royce, Link-Up CEO Janelle Clarke introduced Mr Husic to our Chairperson Lizzie May, Members of the Board and the organisation’s hard-working staff.
“As our local Federal MP, we would like to thank Mr Husic for his interest and support of Link-Up’s work in the local western Sydney community, connecting families, communities and kinship,” Ms Clarke said.
“We appreciated the opportunity to brief Mr Husic on Link-Up’s proud 40-year history of helping Aboriginal people, who have been deeply impacted by removal and separation, reuniting them with family and culture.
“Link-Up is looking forward to working with Mr Husic and our other community stakeholders as we build-on our four successful programs and develop new strategies to strengthen the organisation’s capacity to provide Aboriginal people with the culturally-safe services they need, so we can get back with their mob.”
