Budget Win for Lighthouse

Greater Shepparton Lighthouse Project has welcomed the significant investment in Shepparton’s young people announced yesterday in the Victorian State Budget.

Lighthouse Executive Officer, Lisa McKenzie, said the community has spoken and the government has listened by announcing $3 million in funding for Lighthouse initiatives. She praised the efforts of local Member Suzanna Sheed in advocating for the funding.

Mrs McKenzie said the funding is recognition and support for the enormous commitment the community has shown for the initiative that now has 340 volunteers and 20 business partners and is pushing for better outcomes for young people on many fronts.
