Disability Services Minister Stephen Dawson has today announced a $4.8 Million Lotterywest grant to Rocky Bay for the redevelopment and expansion of its Mosman Park facility.
“State Government is proud to support worthy projects like Rocky Bay’s Mosman Park expansion through the Department of Communities and Lotterywest. In doing so, we are all helping to build a better Western Australia.” Minister for Disability Services Stephen Dawson said.
“Rocky Bay redevelopment and expansion project provides a unique opportunity to drive lasting change in the way people with disability are supported so they can lead more independent, inclusive and fulfilled lives.”
Rocky Bay is a registered service provider for the National Disability Insurance Scheme and has been delivering disability services since it was founded in 1938.
Redevelopment project will provide an integrated disability and support facility that builds on existing rehabilitation, therapy, training, skills development, recreation, employment and technology programs.
Rocky Bay’s current facility services 475 clients but no longer meets the needs of the disability sector.
Expanded facility is expected to cater for an additional 700 clients when it reaches full capacity in 2022.
Expansion is due to start in August next year and be completed by early 2021.
