Disability employer Endeavour Industries is ready to take on more business after the completion of repairs to its roof following a grant of $30,000 from the NSW Government's Community Building Partnerships program.
That grant was supported by former Goulburn MP Pru Goward and complemented a grant of $35,000 awarded from the NSW Minister for Disabilities, Ray Williams, that was announced earlier in 2018.
Wendy Tuckerman, MP for Goulburn, visited Endeavour Industries, met the management and workers, and saw the facility and the repaired roof.
Talking about Endeavour, she said the organisation was providing a wonderful service and that it was "critical to our community and to the people that work here."
"It's been wonderful that the NSW Government has been able to assist you with grants to repair the roof. It is important to have safe working conditions for people. For the people that work here, it is important that we support them and make sure that they are skilled and being part of a wonderful community."
General manager Sonya White said: "Working under a new roof that improves lighting, allows better use of space and provides more comfortable surroundings, is fantastic for our supported employees."
Ms White thanked the state government and acknowledged the significant support of former Goulburn MP Pru Goward for making the repairs possible.
Endeavour Industries provides meaningful employment opportunities for people with disability to gain essential work skills and improve their confidence.
