Liverpool Neighbourhood Connections has been awarded $10 000 grant as a finalist in the Champions competition.
“We asked the children what they didn’t like about where they lived and what they needed,” said the group’s community development manager Pat Hall.
“They told us they would find needles, knives and graffiti around the area. They told us there was nothing to do. It was really sad”
The grant will enable them to create a multipurpose court a Warwick Farm Neighbourhood Centre. This can be used by the young members of the community as well as the older ones, in physical activity workshops and tournaments.
The parents and the kids are very excited and dedicated into making this happen.
