No funding from Labor for Robina Community Legal Centre

Member for Mudgeeraba, Ros Bates MP has come out swinging against the Labor Government as no funding has been allocated once again to the Robina Community Legal Centre today.

“I am hugely disappointed that Labor has chosen to play political games with this issue again”,

“This is the fourth budget in which Labor has ignored the pleas of the local community as well as my ongoing advocacy which at last years election included a $550,000 commitment to fund the service”,

“The Robina Community Legal Centre provides a crucial community service to those who need it most in our local area, particularly in relation to domestic and family violence, instances of which have increased dramatically in recent months”,

“Local residents will be rightfully stunned by Labor’s ongoing refusal to fund a Community Legal Centre in our area, and I will continue to stand with them as we fight for funding in the future” said Ms. Bates.

The Centre is currently open and operating on community funding however it’s future remains insecure without dedicate State Government funds.
