Letters to The LEAD Group

4 November 1996

Dear Ms O’Brien

Further to my representations on behalf of The LEAD Group Inc. regarding future funding for the LEADLINE Project, I have today received a response from Senator the Hon. Robert Hill, Leader of the Government in the Senate and Minister for the Environment, a copy of which I have enclosed for your information . . .[below].

Yours sincerely
Paul Zammit, MP
Federal Member for Lowe

 Received 21 Oct 1996

Dear Mr Zammit

Thank you for your letter of 7 May 1996 concerning future funding for the Leadline Project run by The LEAD Group Inc. of Dulwich Hill. I apologise for the delay in replying to your letter.

I am advised that a one off grant was made to The LEAD Group in 1995/96 for a community based information and referral service in support of the national survey of blood lead in children, which was anticipated would cause heightened community awareness and concern . . .

The service provided by The LEAD Group has been a valuable back up to the national lead awareness program and is very much appreciated. As the funds for this program terminate this year I am not in a position to give any commitments on future funding. I will be reviewing the Department’s grants program for non-government organisations and will take The LEAD Group’s claim, and those of other community groups, into account in this context.

Yours sincerely
Senator the Hon. Robert Hill

Received 10 February 1997

Dear Ms O’Brien

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your phone advice, referrals and the written information mailed to me.

The issue of lead paint on my house has been very worrying. Your advice and assistance greatly helped me to make a decision about how to deal with it with which I am happy.

There seems such a long way to go in making people more aware of the hazards of lead and obviously your service is really important in this regard. My contact with your service continued to affirm that I was dealing with this issue in the right way despite the comments of people around me who are yet to be convinced. When I am finished with the wonderful information kit you sent me I will be forwarding it on!

Once again thank you and be assured that I will raise this issue wherever I can.

Dear LEAD Group,

I am writing to thank you for all your advice over the last year and to tell you that thanks to Lead aware housekeeping recommended by you, our one and a half year old daughter Rose’s lead levels have dropped from 14.5 g/dL to 6.3 g/dL in just 5 months. We are feeling very proud of ourselves and grateful for The LEAD Group’s existence. Meanwhile we keep wet dusting and mopping into the new year . . . Ho hum.

Thank you and all the best for more and more funding.

Yours sincerely
Fiona Mackenzie & David Peterson
