The Canberra Liberals have today welcomed the opening of the new Karinya House for Mothers and Babies to allow the charity to continue its wonderful work, Speaker of the Legislative Assembly and Member for Ginninderra Vicki Dunne said today.

“I’ve been a long time advocate for improved facilities for Karinya House and am so pleased the hard work and lobbying of many has now come to fruition with these new purpose built facilities, leased to Karinya. I just wish it could have happened a lot sooner,” Mrs Dunne said.

“Karinya House provides many services to pregnant and parenting women who are struggling with crises in their lives including; accommodation, outreach, support groups and casework services, and long may those services continue.

“The Canberra Liberals will always be advocates for Karinya House and other organisations that provide such services to vulnerable mothers. I look forward to more support for charities like Karinya House going forward,” Mrs Dunne concluded.
