Additionally, numerous community groups receive funding for the establishment of facilities to meet specialised needs such as youth and women's refuges. The latest specific purpose community facilities to be provided include the Koomarri hydrotherapy pool, the Lanyon Youth & Community Centre and the Gungahlin Community Resource Centre.

I commend the Government Response to the Members of the Legislative Assembly.
