Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith, Parliamentary Secretary for Western Sydney, recently acknowledged the Muru Mittigar Community Finance Hub model as “unique in its delivery of financial capacity to Aboriginal clients”, in NSW Parliament.
Mr. Ayres described Muru Mittigar as doing “a fantastic job promoting many programs, including rehabilitation of the Penrith Lakes precinct and Aboriginal cultural programs”.
The main focus of the address was to communicate the positive outcomes that the Community Finance Hub has had, and continues to have, on the local community. “The program has made some fantastic achievements in the past 12 months. It has dealt with 1,061 client issues, offering a holistic approach to client needs”, said Mr. Ayres. “The program has improved its clients’ standards of living and family relationships and, most importantly, it has improved their social outcomes.”
