Anam Cara House Colac

Mr GRIMLEY: Lastly, I just want to say congratulations to Anam Cara House Colac, who received over $250 000 in funding to keep the doors open. I first spoke with founder and president Diane Wright in July last year to hear about their community-owned hospice established to provide respite, palliative care and end-of-life care for the people of the south-west. From that meeting I wrote a letter of advocacy to Minister Foley for continued funding for the hospice. I met again with Diane more recently in December and was very worried to hear that the future continued to look bleak without additional funding. I was so very pleased to hear about funding announcement from the government for this vital service. And a big thank you to Anam Cara House for all that you do.
