Indigenous health care boost FIRST Peoples’ Health and Wellbeing has received nearly $2 million to expand its services. The Frankston-based Indigenous healthcare provider’s CEO, Karinda Taylor, said the funding would “ensure that first nations’ people are provided with culturally safe services that meet the health and wellbeing needs of local communities”. The funding was secured through the federal government’s Indigenous

Australians’ Health Programme. It is expected to fund service expansion and minor capital costs until 2023. Dunkley MP Peta Murphy said “the City of Frankston is home to one of the fastest growing indigenous populations in Victoria. This funding will allow First Peoples’ Health and Wellbeing to continue their crucial work and expand their local services. I’m proud to have lobbied the federal government for this additional funding”.

Now you’d be lucky to find an original pressing for under $50.” The event will run from 10am 4pm. It will be run in partnership with Frankston Council.
