The Blacktown Outdoors Group has been awarded a Community Development Support Expenditure Grant (CDSE) through the Blacktown City Council.
The grant has allowed the group to purchase equipment for their weekly pottery class.
With the group’s financial situation secure we can continue to assist gay men, whether positive or negative, to be more socially active in this often ignored area of Sydney, spokesmen Mike Moore and Jeff Lees said.
This grant has allowed the group as a whole to purchase much-needed equipment and it has also given the pottery classes certainty with its funding.
The community group was set up two years ago to counter the social isolation and lack of services for gay HIV positive men in Western Sydney.
The Blacktown Outdoors Group holds a social night at the Blacktown Workers Club on the last Sunday of each month and also runs monthly bushwalks and other social activities.
