The purpose of the CBP program is to invest in infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes while promoting community participation, inclusion and cohesion.

The three successful Jewish organisations were Jewish House, which received $16,000 for a vehicle allowing the Social Services Team to service clients; the Sephardi Synagogue which received $35, 300 in funding for a disabled toilet and upgrade of current bathroom facilities; and Moriah College which received $25,000 for an outdoor inclusive learning space.

Dr O’Neill said: “One of the great privileges of working in State Government is being able to award Community Building Partnership grants to organisations striving to strengthen social, sporting, religious and cultural bonds.

I am continually impressed with the dedication and energy of Jewish leaders and organisations in building community hubs. I congratulate Jewish House, Moriah College and the Sephardi Synagogue on receiving these grants to continue their wonderful work in the social impact, educational and religious arenas and welcome other Jewish community applications in future years.”
