How to Vote for Nola in Forrest

Keeping Australians Safe Online

Staying safe online is more important than ever to Australian families.💻

Whilst being an MP I have seen first-hand the effects that cyberbullying and online trolling can have not just on children but adults and our society in general.
That’s why the Liberal Government is continuing to take world-leading actions on online safety.

Under our plan we will:
• Legislate tough new laws to force social media giants to unmask anonymous online trolls and better protect Australians online.
• Help families protect their kids by requiring tech companies to install stronger parental controls on smartphones and tablets.
• Boost training for teachers and schools to make sure they can help keep their students safe online.
• Cut red tape in reporting abuse, ensuring victims ‘tell-us-once’ and get the help they need.
• Support multicultural communities to improve online safety.

This commitment builds on our implementation of the world’s first eSafety Commissioner, who has helped with around 4,000 cyberbullying complaints, 9,000 instances of image-based abuse and over 70,000 items of illegal and restricted online content, including child sexual abuse material.

Marino pledges $400,000 commitment to Augusta Childcare

Liberal Member for Forrest, Nola Marino was in Augusta last week to announce a $400,000 commitment to the establishment of additional childcare facilities in the area.

Ms Marino said a new childcare centre had been a long-held desire of the Augusta community.

“Childcare enables parents to resume their careers as their families grow and improved access to childcare services would be a huge win for the whole community,” she said.

“All Australian families deserve access to quality childcare, regardless of where they live. Access to quality childcare is good for families, good for communities and good for local economies.

“The Shire of Augusta Margaret River has made provision for new childcare facilities in Augusta, but costs for the project have escalated putting it beyond reach of the local community.

“We are also making childcare more affordable, by removing the annual cap on the Child Care Subsidy and providing additional support for families with multiple children in childcare at the same time,” she said.

Ms Marino said if re-elected, the Morrison Government would deliver the project in partnership with the Shire of Augusta Margaret River.

“I’m proud of what I have achieved for the people of Forrest, and I’m committed to delivering more, like this great project,” she said.

New Childcare Centre for Augusta Community

Parents in Augusta will have access to additional childcare services, with a re-elected Coalition Government committing $400,000 to deliver new childcare facilities in the area.

Liberal Member for Forrest, Nola Marino, said a new childcare centre has been a long-held desire of the Augusta community.

“Childcare enables parents to resume their careers as their families grow and improved access to childcare services would be a huge win for the whole community,” Mrs Marino said.

“All Australian families deserve access to quality childcare, regardless of where they live. Access to quality childcare is good for families, good for communities and good for local economies.

“I’m really pleased to commit $400,000 under a re-elected Coalition Government to get this project going,” Mrs Marino said.

This commitment builds on the Government’s ongoing investment in childcare, which benefits more than 5,000 families living in Forrest.

“We are also making childcare more affordable, by removing the annual cap on the Child Care Subsidy and providing additional support for families with multiple children in childcare at the same time,” she said.

Mobile Black Spot Program has delivered 22 new towers in the South West

Hi, as your representative for Forrest, I’ve worked hard to deliver better mobile phone and wireless internet coverage for the South West. There is always more to do, and I will continue to work hard to deliver for the Forrest electorate.

The Mobile Black Spot Program has delivered 22 new towers in the South West and has really improved mobile coverage throughout our region. *Due to 2021 electorate boundary changes, 9 are now located in O’Connor.

In the recent 22/23 federal budget $1.3 billion was allocated nationally for regional telecommunications.

• $480 million to NBN Co to upgrade fixed wireless towers to increase their range and speed to be completed by 2024.
• $811 million to increase mobile phone coverage and enhance network resilience.

I will endeavour to ensure we get our fair share of that $1.3 billion.

Let me know of any mobile or internet black spots in your area HERE.
