‚ÄčA total of 11 regional community groups and local governments are hosting Children's Week events this week thanks to a new grants program offered by the Department of Local Government and Communities (DLGC).

Delivered in partnership with Meerilinga Young Children's Foundation the inaugural Children's Week Grants program delivered $20,000 in grants, to support children's events in regional WA.

A further $3,000 was also provided to enable Meerilinga's six centres in Perth to hold their own events.  

Funded events for the week include a superhero themed community fun day, a circus and dance workshop, a teddy bear's picnic and a Hallowe'en disco.

Children's Week is an opportunity for WA's communities to engage in a variety of activities that facilitate, support and encourage children and their families to play, learn and grow together.
