During the House the Minister of National Security The Hon. Wayne Perinchief announced a key element of transforming lives and ensuring at-risk individuals stay on the right path is effective case management.
Minister Perinchief said, “Our social assistance framework is consumed with meeting the needs presented by many problems in our society.”
“With my colleague the Honorable Member, the Minister of Youth, Families and Sports, I intend to urge a priority tasking for case management in support of gang prevention and where possible a renewed focus on wider familial issues in this area,” continued Perinchief.
Minister Perinchief went on to say, “The Government cannot do it all and with my colleague responsible for sport we intend to innovatively encourage the private sector, both local and international, to adopt clubs in support of much needed infrastructure improvements. We cannot claim to be a cosmopolitan and sophisticated jurisdiction and not have sports facilities that meet minimum standards of comfort and quality. Simple things like lights, family friendly design, varied activities and the like will encourage positive activities at sites that already have contributed so much to our community.”
Minister Perinchief concluded, “In the first instance, the public/private partnership must be one that offers specific skills and administration to our clubs so that they are well positioned to encourage the donor community to rally to their cause.”
