Partnerships and engagement
The department’s regional staff contribute to a broad range of agendas in partnership with regional development commissions, other State Government agencies, local government and non-government organisations.
Engagement with regional development stakeholders is a particular focus of the regional service. As each Regional Development Commission develops its Regional Investment Blueprint,
the department ensures sport and recreation is positioned so that future investment decisions ensure liveable regional communities and it supports healthy and active lifestyles.
The department provides a range of services to regional WA including a number of funding opportunities to ensure culture and the arts, and sport and recreation is as accessible and vibrant in the regions as it is in the metropolitan area.
