Who else can assist a Smarter than Smoking Active Community?

Department of Sport and Recreation

The Department of Sport and Recreation (DSR) is the lead state agency responsible for the implementation of government policy and initiatives in sport and recreation. A key role of the department is to contribute to the healthy lifestyle of Western Australians by increasing physical activity in the community through sport and recreation.

The DSR can support a Smarter than Smoking Active Community in two ways:

  • Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF)
    The purpose of this program is to provide financial assistance to communities and local government to develop basic infrastructure for sport and recreation. The program aims to increase participation in sport and recreation, with an emphasis on physical activity, through rational development of sustainable, good quality, well-designed and well-utilised facilities. For more information on this contact the CSRFF or contact your local Garnduwa office. 
  • Community Participation Funding (CPF)
    Grants are available for programs that increase participation or skill development of Indigenous groups. Projects must increase participation in physical activity and/or enhance the development of sport and recreation personnel. Grants are available all year round with the funding range from $1000 to $5000 and can be used for program costs, coaching clinics, venue and equipment hire, volunteer training, coaching and officiating courses. For more information contact the CPF or contact your local Garnduwa office.
