Expansion of Silverwater correctional facility …


Construction starts early next year on an almost 700-bed expansion of the Silverwater and Dillwynia correctional facilities. This will create about 200 permanent jobs, and 550 construction jobs in the Greater Western Sydney area.

There’s also another 13 prison construction projects underway across NSW, including a 650-bed expansion of Parklea Correctional Centre and two 400-bed rapid build prisons in Wellington and Cessnock.

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.
