Laudable generosity from Lotterywest, coupled with the dedication of our staff, enabled Gowrie WA to officially open the Karawara Family and Community Centre in December 2012. The Karawara Family and Community Centre is situated on the same site as the Karawara early education and care centre at 61 Lowan Loop. Its establishment compliments the long-standing of services and programs at the Gowrie WA Leeming Family and Community Centre, located off Farrington Road.
Funded by the Department for Local Government and Community, the family and community centres exist to meet the needs of the Karawara and Leeming communities, and beyond. Programs and activities such as playgroups, parenting groups and dance classes, combine with services provided by Health Nurses and Clinical Nurse Specialists and other like-minded service operators, to meet the varying needs of people within our communities. Integrated services and programs promoted through the family and community centres, support the strategic vision of Gowrie WA to ensure that we meet our desire to provide healthy and nurturing learning environments for our children, families and community.
The Karawara and Leeming family and community centres offer a range of spaces and rooms that are available for hire. If you would like to find out more information about the programs and services offered at Karawara or Leeming, or wish to enquire about hire rates and available space, please phone 9312 8200.
