PEOPLE can help shape a community hub being established in Girrawheen.

The City of Wanneroo is refurbishing a former employment services centre behind Girrawheen Library to create a place where job seekers can access support and improve their skills.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said the intention was to increase employment levels and support the needs of the area’s culturally diverse population.

“The aim of the hub is to work with other organisations to help job seekers learn skills that will help them get work and support those wanting a change of career or to start a new business,” she said.

“Nearby Girrawheen Library already has a distinct focus on job readiness by offering free services and workshops and the new hub will expand on this, adding to the sense of place in the precinct.

“There is also an exciting opportunity to offer some City services from the hub to add to the vibrancy of the centre and provide greater access for those residents in the south of our City.”

The City is hosting an open day on May 18 where people can provide feedback on what features would benefit them.

Visit 11 Patrick Court, Girrawheen from 10am to 2pm.
