THE Kens­ing­ton Po­lice and Com­mu­nity Youth Cen­tre (PCYC) is poised to begin ma­jor re­fur­bish­ments to the cen­tre soon.

Kens­ing­ton is one of eight cen­tres across the state set to ben­e­fit from a $10.25 mil­lion cash in­jec­tion from the State Gov­ern­ment.

The cen­tres have been op­er­at­ing in WA for 74 years, of­fer­ing youth ed­u­ca­tional and recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing spe­cial pro­grams for at-risk youth.

WA PCYC chief ex­ec­u­tive Jock Gille­spie is ex­cited about the project and said it was a sub­stan­tial step for the or­gan­i­sa­tion in its part­ner­ship with the WA Po­lice.

“Our PCYC fam­ily has been wait­ing for a long time for this in­jec­tion of con­fi­dence and re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion,” Mr Gille­spie said.

Kens­ing­ton PCYC was es­tab­lished in 1970 and fo­cuses on pro­vid­ing a wide range of crime pre­ven­tion and early in­ter­ven­tion, as well as recre­ational and ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams.
