ACWA has written to the Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services, Gareth Ward, seeking urgent and favourable advice on the future funding of intensive family preservation and support related programs.
This letter puts forward the case for why the Government should be guaranteeing the ongoing funding of these critical services, and also demonstrates the damage that an adverse funding decision would have on vulnerable NSW families who rely on these programs.
