ONE Tree Community Services Inc has been given more than $1.2 million by Lotterywest to help support disadvantaged families throughout regional and remote WA
The Belmont organisation works with more than 30 childcare and community centres in 18 regional and remote communities, including the Laverton Crisis Intervention Centre.
The $1,298,433 grant will be used to improve information, equipment and technology.
Provided by the State Government through Lotterywest, Community Services Minister Simone McGurk said she was pleased the grant would help organisations like One Tree provide the help for families disadvantaged by distance.
“The funding will be used for information technology facilities, equipments and furniture, with a key focus on improving connectivity for remote services,” she said.
“This will result in great improvements in online communications including the delivery of outreach services to families experiencing domestic violence, online staff training, case management across the regions and managing confidential customer information.”
