Services for parenting and family support, specialised children and young people counselling, specialist drug and alcohol support, transitional accommodation and indigenous family violence support will all be on offer at the new centre. UnitingCare West chief executive Sue Ash said the Fremantle Service Centre would also be supported through regular deliveries of food from the Food Rescue service, which gives perishable food to not-for-profit organisations supporting the hungry.

She said the centre�s launch would help build a stronger Fremantle through supporting its vulnerable people.

�The Fremantle Service Centre is a significant achievement for UnitingCare West and will enable UCW to locate its South Metropolitan programs and services in a centralised location,� she said.

�It is also in close proximity to other services that are relevant to the people we help.

�All of our staff are looking forward to working with other organisations to help develop a stronger Fremantle community and provide support to those who need it most.�
