Grants of up to $2000 are on the ta­ble for lo­cal govern­ment and com­mu­nity groups to help cel­e­brate Chil­dren’s Week next month.

The grants are aimed at help­ing to sup­port lo­cal ac­tiv­i­ties in the week, which runs from Oc­to­ber 22 to 30.

North West Cen­tral MLA Vince Cata­nia said Chil­dren’s Week was a good op­por­tu­nity to build fam­ily, peer group and com­mu­nity re­la­tion­ships.

“Pro­vid­ing ac­tiv­i­ties and events as a way for fam­i­lies to in­crease their con­nec­tion with their com­mu­nity, par­tic­u­larly in re­gional and re­mote ar­eas, is im­por­tant,” he said.

“It is a spe­cial oc­ca­sion to cel­e­brate the rights of chil­dren to en­joy their child­hood and I en­cour­age re­gional and re­mote or­gan­i­sa­tions in North West Cen­tral re­gion to con­sider cre­ative and fun ac­tiv­i­ties and events to in­crease con­nec­tion within their com­mu­nity.”
