New Community Hub for Mossman Gorge

A new community hub is opening in Mossman Gorge to provide a central point for local Indigenous people to access support services. Keys for the new Opportunity Hub were presented to the local Hub Manager Roberta Henning by the Minister for Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, Jenny Macklin, when she visited Mossman Gorge recently. The Australian Government has invested $418,000 to deliver the new hub. Ms Macklin said the Opportunity Hub will be run by Cape York Partnerships. The Hub will provide local people with a place to access services such as financial counselling to help people better manage their money, student education trusts to set aside money for their children’s education, tenancy assistance and parenting support. “We want to ensure that local people have access to all the support they need so they can have happy, healthy, stable lives,” Ms Macklin said. “We want to see local people taking up job opportunities in the area. Through this new Opportunity Hub people will get the support they need to keep their lives on track and get ready for work.”
