Yesterday I was pleased to attend the Kensington Police and Community Youth Centre (PCYC) while Police Minister Liza Harvey presented president Sue Gordon with a $125,000 Lotterywest grant.
The grant will assist 20 WA PCYC Centres and Blue Light units to buy laptops, office supplies and sporting equipment. It is expected to benefit thousands of young people across the State.
The PCYC is a not-for-profit organisation that provides at-risk youth and young offenders with important recreational and educational activities and programs. Through its strong relationship with WA police, PCYC provides young people with intensive mentoring to help “break the cycle” of offending and re-offending.
I am very supportive of the organisation and hope that this grant provides the PCYCs with the financial support they need to provide such an outstanding service to the local community.
