Frontier Services 2019 Budget Response
As an agency of the Uniting Church in Australia, Frontier Services is in full support of the 2019 Budget response statement released by President Deirdre Palmer.
Frontier Services’ National Director Jannine Jackson welcomed extra funding of $5.5m over four years for mental health services for people in Tasmania, Victoria and Queensland who had been affected by natural disasters.
“Given our recent and ongoing experience with drought, fire and floods we’re continuing to express our concern for the growing disparity between metro and remote Australia.
“We hope that some of this funding and the overall increase on mental health spending will be accessible to those living and working in remote Australia,” said Ms Jackson.
