Thanks to the City of Vincent, and for their generous grant of $200,000 which will ensure the continued operation of the Passages Youth Engagement Hub in Perth through to November. 
Thanks to these funds, 100% of the program costs will be covered and Passages support workers will be back working full time, continuing to provide Perth youth with a safe and non-judgemental place to access individualised support.

"When COVID-19 hit, our retail shops and fundraising events were put on pause. This greatly affected our ability to fund our services in the WA community. One of these is the Passages Youth Engagement Hubs, a joint venture between us and Perth Rotary - Western Australia, providing support to young people aged 12-25 who are street present, vulnerable, typically in crisis and experiencing a range of complex issues. With anxiety at an all-time high and safety and support becoming harder to access, now more than ever Passages needed to stay open and accessible to young people. Thanks to our supporter City of Vincent, for their generous grant of $200,000 which will ensure the continued operation of our Passages Youth Engagement Hub in Perth through to November. Thanks to these funds, 100% of our program costs will be covered and our support workers will be back working full time, continuing to provide Perth youth with a safe and non-judgemental place to access individualised support."
