Margaret River Recreation Centre Receives $50,000 Grant

The Margaret River Recreation Centre has received a grant of $50,000 to make sure its facilities cater for those with disabilities as well as their families and carers. The centre will use these funds for things such as staff training and equipment.

Hon Barry House, MLC Member for South West Region, said that the shire was amongst seven others in the south west to enjoy over $300,000 in funding, as part of Count Me In Inclusion Grants.

The news article “$50,000 for Margaret River rec centre” has full information on this development. It quotes Mr. House as saying: “Augusta-Margaret River Shire has been successful in their application to provide funding to boost the scope for support to people with a disability using their various recreational services. It is a credit to the dedication and hard work of the shire(s) that they were successful in attaining this competitive funding on behalf of their communities.” http://www.margaretrivermail.com.au/news/local/news/general/50000-for-margaret-river-rec-centre/2628395.aspx

The grant initiative was launched in January 2012 and the recipients will get the opportunity to work in conjunction with Disability Services Commission on its projects.

The goal of these programs is to improve the lifestyles of those with disabilities in terms of the availability of services, programs, equipment and infrastructure to make disability more inclusive within the community.
