  • Perth's Dungeon Youth Centre, a drop-in and support service for at-risk and disadvantaged youths, now has an eight-seater van
  • The van will transport young people to and from school and job interviews
  • The Coalition Government fully funded the $35,561 purchase

Some of Perth's most vulnerable residents will be able to attend job interviews following the purchase of an eight-seater van by the Dungeon Youth Centre in Ballajura.

Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said the van was an important addition to the youth centre, which helps a range of young people within the Perth community.

“I aim to build the kinds of communities our children and grandchildren either want to stay in or come back to, and supporting youth centres is a big part of that,” Minister Nash said.

Senator for Western Australia Dean Smith said the van would allow the youth centre to transport young people to school and job interviews, as well as assisting its ability to provide case management for its clients.

“The Dungeon Youth Centre is widely recognised and supported by the local community, and this van will help them continue their good work,” Senator Smith said.

The Coalition Government committed $35,561 to fully fund the van's purchase.
