REMAINING ROOF REPAIRS FUNDED FOR ENDEAVOUR INDUSTRIES
Local disability employer, Endeavour Industries, are today celebrating a more secure future thanks to another $30,000 grant for remaining repairs to the Oxley St site roof.
Member for Goulburn, Pru Goward, said the funding would ensure the property is completely maintained to continue to be a safe and comfortable environment in which they provide employment and core business services to Goulburn.
The funding, awarded from the NSW Governments Community Building Partnerships program compliments a grant of $35,000 awarded from the NSW Minister for Disabilities, Ray Williams that was announced earlier in the year.
Ms Goward said she was made aware of the urgent need of works mid-June and shocked to see the previous condition of the building.
“I immediately went to Minister Williams and began exploring as many options as possible to ensure this vital employment service continues.
Endeavour Industries provides meaningful employment opportunities for people with disability to gain essential work skills and improve their confidence.
Chair of Endeavour Industries Board, Geoff Kettle said the organisation appreciated the support from the NSW Government.
“Endeavour Industries are extremely grateful for all the hard work that Pru Goward has put in to get this extra money - over and above the previous $35,000 - which will allow us to complete the necessary repairs to the roof,” Mr Kettle said.
Endeavour Industries has been supporting the employment of people with disability in Goulburn since it was established in 1968 and currently employs over 70 people, 55 of whom have disability. For more information about Endeavour Industries Goulburn Inc, visit: www.endeavourgoulburn.com.au
