MS FOLLETT (4.14): I would like to mention today a very significant achievement by one of our premier community organisations, the Northside Community Service. Last week the Northside Community Service celebrated 20 years since their inception. I consider that it has been an extremely distinguished 20 years in terms of service to the people of our ACT community. It is a fact, Mr Speaker, that Northside have vastly increased their services and their professionalism over the course of that 20 years. The clientele of the Northside Community Service now includes older people, which they have always included, children, especially through their child-care activities, young people, victims of domestic violence and people who want to improve their spoken English. In addition to their established services to the North Canberra area, centred as they are on the Majura Centre in Dickson, Northside have forged ahead in Gungahlin. They are now reaching out to everybody in Gungahlin, Canberra's newest region.
