This project is strongly supported by Rotary, with at least 3 Rotary Clubs being core/foundation fundraisers and the Rotary Club of Dalkeith becoming a donator.
The Project features the Rotary Name and hence will be an ongoing promotion for Rotary for many years to come.
Over 50% of the funds required have already been raised and works have commenced on site for the project.
Substantial additional funds are still required to complete the funding for the project.
The ongoing maintenance and management of the facility has been secured with the City of Nedlands agreeing to undertake this vital function.
This is a high-profile project which will meet the needs of many families from both within catchment areas of the Western Suburbs but from across the state as these families visit Perth for example during stays at the Perth’s Children’s Hospital or Ronald McDonald House.
The equipment being provided is quite unique from other playground equipment as it must provide access for people of all abilities. It is this all ability requirement which significantly increases the base cost of the equipment cost. There is no straightforward way of categorising equipment choice; there are several types of disability, and levels of disability. There are 7 senses to consider. Many disabilities are on a spectrum and many are co-morbid, and everyone’s needs are individual.
Many organisations have provided pro bono services for the project.
The Organiser’s are still looking for significant funds to be raised and are looking for assistance in raising these required funds.
