A REFURBISHED state-of-the-art facility at MercyCare Mirrabooka has helped the centre expand its services to more diverse groups and jobseekers.
Bishop Donald Sproxton officially blessed the 840sq m workspace, featuring computer hubs, larger training rooms, consultation rooms, open plan offices, collaboration spaces, interview and meeting rooms, at an event on May 25.
The centre offers employment support for culturally and linguistically diverse job seekers, English conversation classes, citizenship courses and workshops on computer skills, driving tests and arts.
Chief executive Chris Hall said since the refurbishments completed late last year, the community had accessed all classes and courses at one facility.
“We wanted to create a space to provide the Mirrabooka community with access to contemporary services and programs that offered integrated supports and opportunities for diverse groups,” he said.
“The end result is a space that has broken down physical barriers to increase communication and information sharing between staff, and referrals between programs, to lead to better outcomes for service users.”
