Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

MEN­TORS from the Vic­to­ria Park Men’s Shed will work with young peo­ple with an in­tel­lec­tual dis­abil­ity to im­prove their so­cial and vo­ca­tional prospects as part of the State Gov­ern­ment’s inau­gu­ral $40,000 Dr Louisa Alessan­dri Re­search Grant. Dis­abil­ity Ser­vices Min­is­ter He­len Mor­ton said the study by dis­abil­ity ser­vice provider Ther­apy Fo­cus and Curtin Univer­sity was a stand­out in a field of high-qual­ity ap­pli­cants for the grant. “They have come up with an in­no­va­tive re­search pro­ject that is ex­pected to de­liver real ben­e­fits to young peo­ple with in­tel­lec­tual dis­abil­ity,” she said.
