Inland Rail helps ‘brake the cycle’
Toowoomba Police-Citizens Youth Club (PCYC) builds a safer, healthier community through youth development and relies on donations to deliver their many initiatives. We’re proud to support their important work through a grant from our Community Sponsorships and Donations program.
Toowoomba PCYC Branch Manager, Sergeant Cam Crisp said the much-needed funds will be used to support Braking the Cycle, a program designed to help learner drivers who don’t have access to a supervisor or a registered vehicle.
“The grant we received from Inland Rail will be used to train volunteers who help young learner drivers reach the 100 hours of supervision needed to get their licence,” Sgt Crisp said.
“Young folk who have a licence have greater opportunities to obtain work and become productive members of the community.
“While Braking the Cycle was scaled back due to COVID-19 and the need to keep our at-risk volunteers safe, the funds will be invaluable as we re-establish the program in Toowoomba.”
Inland Rail is committed to leaving a positive legacy along the rail corridor. Our Community Sponsorships and Donations program is just one example of the importance we place on ensuring regional communities are supported and benefit from the project.
Applications are open until 31 October 2020 for projects, events and activities starting between December 2020 and February 2021. For more information please visit our website.
