Today is RUOK day. Phone a friend who maybe doing it tough and ask RUOK. Sometimes it will give them a chance to open up rather than hold it all in. I have about 6 friends that I know are suffering and I will be calling them soon.

Sometimes, we can feel apprehensive or unprepared for a conversation where the person may say, “no I’m not ok.” And that’s ok. You’ve got what it takes to na…

WPCC is fund raising to establish a Women’s Community Shelter within the Parramatta LGA. Find out about this organisation through this interview.

Please come to the WP Ball on 21 October to support our fund raising efforts.

Thank you to the extraordinary Jacinta Tynan for inviting me to discuss Transitional Housing on Sky News.

Transitional Housing is the vital next step for women and children coming out of shelters such as The Sanctuary – The Hills Women’s Shelter.

Under my model we can generate a supply of Transitional Housing stock at no cost to anyone.

I am so proud to lead a Council which seeks to support the most vulnerable in our community with innovative solutions such as this.

An opportunity to provide feedback on swimming sites along the Parramatta River.


We’ve been doing a lot of work to understand what we need to do to make the Parramatta River a place for all Sydney-siders to enjoy. We’ve created a shortlist of 12 possible swimming sites and would like you to tell us which ones you find the most desirable. To have your say, go to: www.sydneywatertalk.com.au/parramattariver

“Sydney seaside suburbs facing significant danger of inundation include Manly Vale, Kurnell, Caringbah and Cromer. Properties along the Cooks and Parramatta Rivers, in Arncliffe, Marrickville, Homebush Bay, Newington and Silverwater, are also at risk during high tides from rivers breaching their banks and storm waters backing up into residential neighbourhoods.”
