Ms SANDELL (Melbourne) — (Question 152) My question is to the Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing. Will the Labor government commit funding for the Venny adventure playground in Kensington? 

The Venny-Kensington Adventure Playground provides much-needed services for local kids, especially those in public housing who have no backyards, few places to go before and after school and who suffer various forms of disadvantage. The Venny lost its funding due to the former government's cuts. It is only open due to the generosity of the local community and Melbourne City Council, but it urgently needs a relatively small injection of funds from the state government to support it and to ensure that it can keep its doors open.
