Labor commits to reinstate funding for Reclink's nation program

Federal Labor MP Anthony Albanese today announced a funding commitment worth 2.4 million over four years, to reinstate funding for Reclink Australia's national program. 

Reclink is delighted to receive the support of the Australian Labor Party and thanked Mr Albanese for his announcement, which was made today at the Sydney Community Cup launch at Young Henrys. 

Reclink Australia CEO John Ballis said the much needed funding would ensure Reclink could respond, rebuild and reconnect with the community’s most vulnerable and marginalised people.

“On behalf of Reclink Australia I’d like thank the honourable Member for Grayndler, Anthony Albanese, for his announcement to reinstate the funding for our national program,” Mr Ballis said.

“Reclink is grateful for the outstanding support from the Australian Labor Party which helps us deliver more than 60,000 sport, art and recreation participation opportunities in partnership with our 360 member organisations across Australia each year.

“Reclink has risen to all the financial challenges since our funding was cut in 2014. Through innovation, collaboration and a strategic approach we have grasped the opportunities offered to establish a stronger footprint across Australia.”

Labor’s funding promise follows recommendations by a Senate Select Committee that the Government immediately reinstate funding for Reclink’s national program.
