COMMUNITY care organisation Chorus’s ability to enable people to live the life they choose has received a boost thanks to $506,580 from Lotterywest.

Chorus provides a community-based service to support people’s needs later in life when living with disability or on the mental health recovery journey.

Seniors and Ageing, Volunteering and Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray presented the cheque to Chorus board chair Moira Watson and chief executive Dan Minchin at the Chorus Ability Arts Centre in Mandurah today.

Chorus, the merger of Community First, Care Options and Volunteer Task Force, is a historic amalgamation for the community care sector with the grant going towards specific projects association with the transition to One Chorus.

Mr Minchin said that thanks to the support of Lotterywest, Chorus could complete the merger and get on with bringing a fresh, community-building approach to more West Australians.

Chorus provides a fresh approach to community service, supporting communities across Perth and the South-West, including Mandurah, Rockingham, Bunbury and Albany and also offers a range of volunteering opportunities.
