Bunbury’s Doors Wide Open has been allocated an extra $200,000 in Government funding following a visit from Premier Mark McGowan today.
The funding is on top of the $100,000 already committed through the State Government’s Local Projects, Local Jobs program and another nearly $84,000 announced in April.
Mr McGowan today said the Government was “proud” to continue supporting the drug support group, which has helped hundreds of families across the South West.
“Tackling the meth scourge requires action on many different levels, it’s not just a law and order issue,” Mr McGowan said.
“That’s why it’s so important that we continue to support grassroots organisations like Doors Wide Open, who have been successful in breaking the cycle of addiction.
“I’d like to congratulate the dedicated staff at Doors Wide Open, who work tirelessly to help families in the South West, who are often at breaking point, to deal with the very complex issues associated with methamphetamine use.”
