Greens leader and parliamentarian Adam Bandt recently visited the GCM’s Greek Centre to announce that the Community was successful in its application for a ‘Melbourne Stronger Communities Program’ grant.
Special thanks to Vasso Zangalis for the lead up work and the submission, while Theo Markos and Kostas Avlonitis also assisted in the application.
The grant will be used to install baby changing tables on some of the building’s levels to create a more family friendly environment.
Most of the discussions were centred around providing an overview of the Community’s cultural and educational programming.
Mr Bandt and his office staff, were also keen to hear about the Community’s mentoring efforts with other less established migrant groups ( i.e. South Sudanese) and also how these efforts could be extended to other groups in the Melbourne area.
