In the News
On Australia Day, we reflect on the past, present and future, listen and respect each other’s stories, contributions and aspirations and celebrate being Australian together because we are all part of the story of Australia.
The $260 million National Partnership on Family, Domestic and Sexual Violence has been rolled out, with New South Wales receiving their first payment of $20.032 million to help address increased demand for frontline services as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Federal Member for Mitchell, the Hon Alex Hawke MP, said The Morrison Government is committed to working collaboratively and cooperatively with our state and territory counterparts to ensure women and children have access to support they need to live free of violence.
From today, small and medium food and beverage manufacturers in Mitchell can apply for a grant of up to $25,000 each to save money on energy bills, improve energy efficiency and adopt new energy technologies under the latest $19.9 million round of the Energy Efficient Communities (EEC) program.
The Morrison Government is committed to keeping Australians safe online. Social media can too often be a cowards’ palace, where the anonymous can bully, harass and ruin lives without consequence. We would not accept these faceless attacks in a school, at home, in the office, or on the street. And we must not stand for it online, on our devices and in our homes.
All Australians should be able to engage online confidently, to work, communicate, and be entertained without fear of abuse, humiliation or exposure to harmful content.
2021 continued to be impacted by COVID-19, locally, the Mitchell community has excelled during these difficult times over the past year.
Thank you to the Hills community for your perseverance, sacrifice and good spirit you have shown to get through this period.
