Government commits funds to Youthsafe charity

Bennelong will benefit from a re-elected Turnbull Liberal Team with the announcement today of an $8,500 commitment to Youthsafe to help them with their education programme.

Minister for Health, the Hon Sussan Ley MP today joined with Liberal Member for Bennelong John Alexander to announce this commitment that will benefit the local community.

Youthsafe is an organisation that partners with the community to prevent unintentional injury of young people. Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death and disability in Australia and Youthsafe sets out to educate young people so they know the consequences of their actions and other hazards.

“Bennelong is blessed to be home to many health charities and Youthsafe is one of the best. The personal experience they bring to their work, makes their message all the more powerful and helps it to resonate with their young audience,” John Alexander said.

“This money will help secure Bennelong’s reputation as the centre of excellence for rehabilitation and injury prevention, and more importantly, should save many young lives from needless injuries into the future.”

“The Turnbull Liberal Team is dedicated to building stronger communities across Australia. We understand that by investing in projects such as this one, we help grow a more vibrant and viable community.”

Youthsafe’s Chief Executive, Warren Johnson, welcomed this announcement saying, “This will enable us to purchase resources that would be otherwise beyond our reach. It will add huge value to our work in schools.”

A re-elected Turnbull Government will deliver jobs, growth and stronger communities.
