A re-elected Morrison Government will provide $1 million for the Swan Districts Football Club to establish a Youth Centre, providing education and employment services for young Australians.
Liberal Member for Hasluck, the Hon Ken Wyatt AM MP said the proposed Youth Centre will provide youth between the ages of 12 and 24 a safe place to drop in, and importantly a way for them to connect and engage with support, counselling, employment and training providers.
The Swan Districts Football Club run several youth outreach programs in Western Australia, and this latest Youth Centre in Forrestfield will add to their current network in Perth, Onslow and Roebourne.
“These kinds of initiatives are integral to the wellbeing of youth in our community and provide young people with safe and accessible centres for education and transition to employment services in Perth and Western Australia,” Minister Wyatt said.
“This project will include services such as counselling and case management, emergency relief including the provision of food, clothing and toiletries, drug and alcohol support, education support, health and wellbeing, and organised recreation activities.
Liberal candidate for Swan, Kristy McSweeney said that while Swan Districts Football Club is based outside the electorate of Swan she is delighted they will be setting up this service in Forrestfield.
“Providing a safer community is part of my plan for Swan. By delivering a strong economy, the Morrison Government can continue to ensure that projects like this are funded for a stronger future,” Ms McSweeney said.
Only the Morrison Government has a plan to continue delivering a strong economy and a stronger future for all Western Australians.
