The Department has three key reasons to invest time and funds in these organisations:
- To foster an effective management and governance capacity to enable these organisations to deliver sport and recreation in a safe, effective and sustainable manner;
- To increase the capacity of these organisations to attract participants and deliver a high quality activity to more West Australians; and
- To support these organisations to deliver a diverse social policy agenda that is important to the Government’s goals.
The focus of the Department is to systematically support improved governance and management within the sport and recreation sector in the belief that better governed and managed organisations will enable better outcomes to be achieved in a longer term sustainable manner.
