A total of 17 inclusive programs that promote sport and recreation to low participation groups have been funded, thanks to the WA Government’s Targeted Participation Program.
The program will support a diverse range of projects, including multicultural women’s yoga, youth boxing and all-inclusive little athletics – in metropolitan areas such as Armadale and Stirling, and regions including the Pilbara and Mid-West.
The projects are designed to include groups that typically are not engaged in organised sport and recreation – including Aboriginal participants, teenage girls, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, people with disability, seniors, and disengaged youth.
