More support for child care services in O’Connor

Member for O’Connor Rick Wilson today announced $50,000 to improve access to child care for children and families living in Albany.

Mr Wilson said Kingdom Kare will receive Morrison Government support through the Community Child Care Fund (CCCF).

“This funding will help Kingdom Kare purchase a bus, allowing them to offer transport assistance to isolated families and ensure families in Albany can access child care services,”

Mr Wilson said.

“It means more hard-working families in Albany can take advantage of our Government’s Child Care Subsidy to work, learn or volunteer.

“The CCCF is part of our Government’s Child Care Safety Net, which aims to give the most vulnerable children a strong start, while supporting parents into work.”

Mr Wilson said the Morrison Government was providing more than $7 million to 76 child care providers in disadvantaged areas across the country.

“Our Government is providing a record investment of $8.6 billion for child care this year,”
Mr Wilson said. “Our Child Care Subsidy has reduced out-of-pocket child care costs for families by more than 7.9 per cent.”

The Morrison Government has provided more than $120 million to 800 providers over five years to support more families to access child care through the CCCF.

MEET RICK

I was inspired to run for Parliament following my involvement in a decade-long campaign to deregulate the wheat industry, which brought about the end of the Australia Wheat Board’s monopoly.

“I stand proudly for the Liberal philosophy of free markets, vigorous competition, small government and individual responsibility. These are the principles that guide me in my life and in this place. My track record in public life shows clearly that I am prepared to stand up for those principles.”

“To the electors of O'Connor, I reiterate the commitment that I have made to work tirelessly on your behalf, to always be frank and honest about the challenges we face, and to work cooperatively and collaboratively to improve the lives of the people who live in the greatest part of the greatest nation on earth”
