Introduction

 

On 11 September 2011, Jude Irwin – Professor of Social Work and Social Justice, Chief Investigator of Working From the Ground Up (WFGU) wrote to the Mayor requesting contribution (financial and in-kind support) towards the planning and running of its second Family Fun Day in the City’s southern suburbs. The event will take place on 25 November 2011, at Matraville Memorial Park (property of Housing NSW) from 3.00pm to 7.00pm.

 

Issues

 

WFGU is an Australian Research Council Linkage research project being undertaken in the public housing estates of South Maroubra and Matraville by the University of Sydney and the University of NSW, in partnership with Housing NSW, Health NSW and TAFE NSW. WFGU aims to tackle issues associated with social exclusion and disadvantages in social housing neighbourhoods through community development initiatives. One of the initiatives is to hold Family Fun Days.

 

The Family Fun Day is designed as an opportunity for residents to gain information of community services, celebrate their diversity and to develop relationships with the local community.

 

WFGU has requested financial and in-kind support from a number of key agencies, including Randwick City Council to hold the Matraville Family Fun Day on 25 November 2011.

 

Financial support is requested for the provision of a jumping castle, a petting zoo, face painting and a clown (valued at $3,210). In-kind assistance is requested for the provision of additional litter bins, cleaning services after the event, two mobile toilets and the use of Council marquees (valued at $790). Earlier this year, the Council had made a similar contribution through its Community Development Budget for the WFGU’s first Family Fun day held at Maroubra. 

 

Under normal circumstances, WFGU should have applied for funding through the Council’s Community Partnerships Funding Program (held in April 2011) or through its Cultural Community Program (held August 2011).

 

However, as this is a worthwhile initiative, it would be appropriate for the Council to contribute $2,000 (financial $1,210; in-kind $790) towards the Family Fun Day since other state government agencies are involved, and as project partners would also be contributing towards this event.

 

The suggested contribution by Council, totalling $2,000, can be funded under the Community Development budget. 

 


Relationship to City Plan

 

The relationship with the City Plan is as follows:

 

Outcome 2:       A vibrant and diverse community.

Direction 2c:      Strong partnerships between Council, community groups and government agencies.

 

Financial impact statement

 

No additional financial impact on the Council as the $2,000 can be accommodated under the Community Development budget 2011-12.

 

Conclusion

 

The Matraville Family Fun Day, scheduled for 25 November 2011, will give social housing residents and their families the opportunity to celebrate their diversity, develop relationships with the local community, and gain information about community services. It is therefore a worthy community event for the Council to make a $2,000 financial contribution outside its grants programs.

 

Recommendation

 

That:

 

a)     Council approve the provision of in-kind contribution of $790 and a cash contribution of $1,210, totalling $2,000, towards the Matraville Family Fun Day, to be funded from the Community Development budget;and

 

b)     Note that the information about the Council’s community grants programs, application forms and details of application closing dates will be provided to members of WFGU, should they decide to seek financial assistance from the Council in future.

 

c)     WFGU be advised of the need to give adequate and appropriate acknowledgement for the Council’s contribution to the running of this event.  Such acknowledgement to include Council’s logo for inclusion on promotional literature.

Introduction

 

The State Library of NSW has forwarded all public libraries in New South Wales a request from Marrianne Wilkins, Librarian In Charge, Ron Woodham Library, Metropolitan Remand and Reception Centre, Holker Street, Silverwater, requesting donations of books in Indonesian to the Remand Centre as their collection is very small and has been read out.
