$985,000 Lotterywest grant for new youth centre
Lotterywest has granted the City of Rockingham $985,000, to help set up an improved youth centre for Rockingham residents aged between 12 and 24.
The City will fund the rest of the new centre, which will cost about $2.5 million to build.
Premier Mark McGowan presented City of Rockingham mayor Barry Sammels with the Lotterywest cheque and said he was proud to support the development, which will allow younger community members to connect with their City.
“This centre will host a range of workshops that will develop life skills and become a hub for young residents to take positive steps towards their future,” he said.
“The Rockingham Youth Centre will be a space for young people to make their own, ensuring they have somewhere to go that is safe and empowers them to develop skills for their future.
“Rockingham is one of the fastest growing cities in the State and projects like this are helping to create a prosperous and well connected community.”
