Lotterywest, a long term supporter of St Patrick’s Community Support Centre, is a proud contributor in building a better WA. Working to enhance the quality of life and well-being for West Australian communities at a grass roots level, Lotterywest give Western Australians the chance to dream through playing a range of Lottery games. All proceeds from these games are given back to the community once prize monies and operating costs have been deducted.
Each year, thousands of community, local government and charitable organisations, as well as sporting organisations, arts and cultural groups and the State’s health services are supported.
St Patrick’s is fortunate to have received outstanding and ongoing support from Lotterywest for more than 15 years which has been a major contributor in driving major community programs directly assisting thousands of West Australians in need. Just some of these have included being the recipient of Grants that fund our Meals and Day Program, Food, Emergency Relief, Website, Equipment and Vehicles.
St Patrick’s is grateful for the ongoing, crucial support from Lotterywest in helping to provide these vital services to those in need within our community.
Department of Child Protection (DCP)
The Department of Child Protection (DCP) is a major and valued partner of St Patrick’s providing a myriad of invaluable child safety and family support services to a vast cross section of Western Australian community.
A Government body that aims to work with families to build safety around their children, enabling them to remain at home rather than being taken into care, the DCP works with community sector organisations and foster carers to provide a safe and protective environment for vulnerable children and young people where remaining at home is not possible.
As an ongoing beneficiary of funding from DCP, St Patrick’s Community Support Centre is able to provide the following services for families and young people within our local community: Housing, Mental Health, Youth Housing and Street to Home Program, Sisters Place, Outreach Workers and Meals and Day Program. The ongoing support of The Department of Child Protection is pivotal to St Patrick’s delivery of these key services.
St Pat’s sincerely thanks all of our supporters for making a difference!
