Recently I had the pleasure of presenting a grant on behalf of Lottery West to a locally based not-for-profit organization Bridging the Gap.
Bridging the Gap is a fantastic organization that provides training and job placement services to local jobseekers. This support is vital for vulnerable sections of our community, especially women and young parents who are looking to improve their circumstances. This funding from the WA State Government will ensure Bridging the Gap programs can continue to grow and expand and provide a meaningful difference for those who are doing it tough.
Comments from Chair of Bridging the Gap Les Hayward
"We are extremely grateful for the support of the State government via Lottery West for this initiative, as we know how much difference it makes to the lives of local young parents. The funding provided will ensure that we can continue to support parents in the Rockingham/Kwinana region, to improve their lives, access training and employment opportunities, and create a better quality of life for their families".
