Community Clubs Mentoring: Socially Inclusive Communities WA 19/20

City of Gosnells in partnership with Inclusion Solutions is offering free mentoring opportunities for local community clubs.


Specialising in the empowerment of local clubs and organisations, Inclusion Solutions has a variety of resources, tools and knowledge to positively influence clubs/groups to be successful and reflective of our local community. The mentoring relationship will be specific to each club and provide a platform for community groups to attract resources, members and volunteers. 

This opportunity is part of the Socially Inclusive Communities WA 2019/20 initiative (SICWA) co-delivered in City of Gosnells with Inclusion Solutions. SICWA delivers specific support to create more inclusive, better-connected communities and promote social inclusion. Local clubs successful in applying for mentoring will be provided best-practice frameworks to follow to be more inclusive and connected within their local community.  Local community clubs interested in taking part in this mentoring opportunity are invited to express their interest by Friday 30 August 2019.

Community groups and clubs are invited to submit an Expression of Interest to take part in this mentoring opportunity. For more information on what is included in this mentoring relationship, download the Expression of Interest Form.

Please submit your completed EoI by Friday 13 September 2019 to community@gosnells.wa.gov.au.
