The Abbott Government has cut funding to the Vietnamese Community Australia (NSW Chapter) to provide Money Management Services and Settlement Services.
This means the VCA will no longer be able to provide help to individuals and families facing financial hardship or support to newly arrived migrants.
The VCA has a long history and outstanding track record of providing quality community services to more than 10,000 Vietnamese people and their families in Western Sydney.
Mr Clare said this cut is another bad captain’s call.
“What a terrible start to the Year of the Goat. Tony Abbott has turned his back on the Vietnamese Community.
“He should stop acting like a goat and restore this funding that helps thousands of Vietnamese people in Western Sydney.
