Funding for Autism Centre

16 April 2019

The Board of Directors are extremely pleased to advise that the Federal Member for Flinders and Minister for Health, the Hon. Greg Hunt MP announced that the Liberal National Government are investing $1.5 million to help Abacus construct a purpose-built Autism Centre on the Mornington Peninsula which includes renovations to our existing site and a wellness centre at Western Port Secondary College.

Greg is a lifetime patron and long-term supporter of Abacus, over the past eleven years Greg has worked tirelessly to help raise funds for the centre including three 500km walks around his electorate raising funds for autism services.

We thank Greg and his team for their overwhelming and continued support of Abacus, with this amazing financial contribution we can now make our dream of a purpose-built centre for young people with autism a reality.
