Acacia Prison launches community grants for youth crime prevention

Published: 25 Feb 2016

Community groups in the Perth Hills region have the opportunity to apply for a grant of up to $2000 thanks to Serco’s team at Acacia Prison.

The sponsorships are available for local groups or organisations who contribute positively to youth crime prevention programs and are located in the Swan and Mundaring local government regions or are primarily focussed on the Perth Hills community.

Serco’s Acacia Director, Nick Cameron, said the team at Acacia had a long history of helping out in the local community and the community grants program would provide even more assistance.

“At Acacia Prison we employ over 400 Western Australian’s who are making a difference by securely managing Australia’s biggest prison and reintegrating hundreds of men into society each year,” Mr Cameron said.

“At Serco we believe in strong local communities and our team is passionate about helping out in our local hills community so we are offering a number of grants up to $2000 for groups who play a positive role in young people’s lives to ensure that they play a positive part in their communities.

“We are looking for groups who, like us, believe community activities for youth play an important role in preventing young people entering the criminal justice system.

“If your group, activity or service is located in the in the Swan and Mundaring local government regions or is primarily focussed on the Perth Hills community we would love to hear from you.”
