In 2021, Western Australians right across the State will enjoy a wonderful week of events during Neighbourhood Centre Week: open days; movie, trivia and board game nights; community breakfasts, lunches and high teas; and more.


Many of the events happening across WA are made possible due to grant funding from Linkwest's  Neighbourhood Centre Week 2021 Small Grant program, which in turn, is due to generous support from Lotterywest.


This year, 38 Linkwest member Centres have been awarded funds to help celebrate with their communities.  In person gatherings are officially back - albeit with stringent hygiene and other COVID safe requirements - and from the descriptions of activities we received in our grant applications, many Centres are 'going large' in their celebrations.
