Federal NSW Nationals Member for Page Kevin Hogan has secured funding to help Lismore’s branch of the Australian Breastfeeding Association run educational classes for new mothers, organised by volunteer mothers in small groups.
The $3240 grant will help the group with training costs.
“This is an important group in our community run by hardworking mothers,” Mr Hogan said.
“I am pleased to have secured funding to help cover training and fuel costs to enable the volunteers to travel around our region.
“The group is an important support network to share experiences, learn from others, make friends and speak with counsellors.
“Supporting training costs help them to complete their certificates and encourages more volunteering in the community.”
