Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Member for Bega Andrew Constance visited Muddy Puddles to see the construction progress on an early intervention education and therapy centre for Eurobodalla children with disability.
In 2015, the NSW Government provided more than $1.3 million to Muddy Puddles to help increase the supports available for children with disability in the region.
Ms Berejiklian said it was great to see construction has started on the new centre.
“Once the centre is complete, more local children with disability will have access to education, therapy and support services provided by Muddy Puddles,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“As an NDIS provider, the organisation will provide local children with disability and their parents with more choice and control over the supports they need.”
The first stage of the new centre is expected to be ready in early 2019 and will include therapy rooms, a playground and a sensory gym.
Mr Constance thanked the NSW Government for investing in the Eurobodalla region.
“Muddy Puddles is transforming the lives of local children with disability by providing tailored supports including speech pathology, occupational therapy, physiotherapy,” Mr Constance said.
Muddy Puddles was founded in 2014 by community members and operates as a not-for-profit organisation offering programs for children and young people with disability, their families and the community.
The project as at Feb 2018
