Funding to make Luke Priddis Foundation a digital hub

Thursday, 09 May 2019

The Morrison Government will support children and their families in Lindsay living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) with an investment in digital infrastructure to deliver better clinical, education and training outcomes.  
 
A re-elected Morrison Government will invest $100,000 to support the Luke Priddis Foundation to upgrade their facilities to support young adults with ASD.  
 
The Luke Priddis Foundation aims to improve the lives of children with ASD, providing early intervention education and support groups for families.  
 
The funding will allow the Foundation to offer sensory screenings of movies and entertainment in an environment designed specifically for young people with ASD and will enhance the Foundation’s capacity to engage with industry and corporate partners.  
 
Liberal Candidate for Lindsay Melissa McIntosh said the funding would transform the Foundation into a digital hub that was capable of delivering new standards of care to support their clients.  
 
“The Luke Priddis Foundation undertakes important work in support of young people with ASD and this funding boost will bring more of what they do into the digital sphere,” Ms McIntosh said.   
 
“Better digital infrastructure will pave the way for the Foundation to tap into new clinical, job and education opportunities which means the Foundation will be able to deliver and provide access to cutting-edge services at a local level.”  
 
Senator Marise Payne said a Morrison Government would continue to invest in services and infrastructure necessary for the fast-growing region of Western Sydney.  
 
“It’s through strong economic management that the Morrison Government is able to support community organisations like the Luke Priddis Foundation in making the wonderful and essential contributions that they do.”
