Residents of all ages and abilities will be given the chance to 'connect' with local sport, recreation and community groups at workshops throughout February and March as part of the Bayswater Connect Program.
The Bayswater Connect Program is delivered by the City of Bayswater in partnership with Inclusion WA and aims to foster inclusive communities and provide a sense of belonging for residents.
The workshops will be held at 12 clubs and groups across the City and will be attended by a Bayswater Connect Project Officer. The Officer will be on hand to introduce community members seeking to match their passions and interests to roles within local sporting clubs or community groups.
City of Bayswater Mayor Barry McKenna believes it is important to grow a strong and inclusive community, where people feel valued and connected.
"Whether you're interested in playing a sport such as tennis or footy, joining the Scouts, attending a music class or taking on the role of treasurer or secretary - there are many different ways to get involved," Mayor McKenna said.
"The Bayswater Connect Program targets local residents who are looking to participate or volunteer in their community but may not know what opportunities are available.
"It also assists local community, recreation and sports groups in the City to increase membership and volunteers and remove barriers to community participation."
The Bayswater Connect Program is funded by the Disability Services Commission and VisAbility (Inc).
